Authorities on Saturday shot and killed a black bear that invaded Cordova salmon boats and refused to leave the harbor, the latest incident in an unusually busy summer of bear activity in the Prince William Sound fishing town, residents said.

"I've never seen it like this," said Brian Wildrick, owner of Harborside Pizza, a 13-year resident.

He's shooed black bears away from his restaurant three times in the last 10 days, and barricaded garbage cans the bears had toppled to break into, he said.
