Police in northern New Jersey shot and killed a 400-pound bear after it ate a pet rabbit. Joe McCabe says the bruin ripped through the screened porch of his Denville home and devoured his 11-year-old daughter's rabbit, named Blackie.

McCabe also says the bear had rummaged through his garbage that had been left outside.

Police found the bear in a tree near McCabe's home and shot it.
