Hide of bear killed Sunday donated to Museum of Northwest Colorado for display

A male bear euthanized Sunday in Craig by Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers will now be allowed to stay in town — as a display. Jan Gerber, assistant director of the Museum of Northwest Colorado, said Thursday that Bill de Vergie, Parks and Wildlife area wildlife manager in Meeker, contacted museum staff to know whether they'd be interested in accepting the bear’s remains as a donation. “Dan (Davidson) and I talked about it and decided to accept the project for educational and display purposes,” Gerber said. “We think we’re a good venue for it because our mission is to educate, but it’s also very historical because it happened here and there are a lot of great pictures to paint the picture of what took place over the weekend.”
