He was a skinny bear with only one arm, who could do little more than scavenge for food in order to survive.
But the disabled black bear made the crucial mistake of rummaging through bins at the upscale housing community in the Blue Ridge Mountains of North Carolina.
He was a common sight as he ambled along golf courses and the neighbourhood, but finally some residents had enough - particularly when he stole two pies from a kitchen counter - and he was shot dead by the area's Wildlife Management.
Now his death in Mountain Air, about 35 miles north of Asheville, has become a flashpoint for the community - with wildlife advocates and some residents outraged at the way the disabled bear was destroyed.
