Woman forgets to set bear trap
NEW CASTLE, Pa. (AP) - February 1, 2013 (WPVI) -- A western Pennsylvania woman says a bear trap didn't prevent a burglar from entering her home.
A local newspaper reports that the woman told police that she usually keeps a large bear trap at the bottom of her basement steps, but forgot to set it on Sunday, when a burglar stole tools from the home.
Police say they suggested the woman find a different way of protecting her home from intruders.
