Repulsive killing of bear wasn't hunting by a long shot


December 13, 2019

A photo that circulated on Facebook showed Brett Stimac posing with the bear federal authorities say was illegally killed.

On Sept. 1, when Minnesota's 3,400 legal bear hunters were in the state's North Woods on the first day of their season, Brett James Stimac was hunkered near a Red Lake Indian Reservation dump, a compound bow in his hand, according to charges filed last week by the U.S. attorney in the Twin Cities.

Whether Stimac, 40, of Brainerd, had scouted bears that frequented the dump and was aware a 700-pound bruin was among them, or whether he happened upon the brute by chance, isn't known.
