bearNew Hampshire - Four bears were found dead in September because of heart failure triggered by an overdose of chocolate that had been put out as bait.

The results of toxicology and necropsy reports revealing the cause of the deaths has prompted the state’s bear expert to consider putting in place new regulations to control how chocolate is used as wildlife bait.

Conservation officers found the dead female bears within 50 feet of an undisclosed bait site in northern New Hampshire.

Two cubs and two adult bears were transported to diagnostic labs at the University of New Hampshire, where a necropsy was performed. The necropsy and subsequent toxicology report found the bears had died of heart failure triggered by poisoning by theobromine, a natural and toxic ingredient found in chocolate. The bears were otherwise healthy.  More

Furor Erupts After Officer Shoots, Kills Unarmed Man

reidBRIDGETON, New Jersey – Controversy has erupted over a police shooting that left an unarmed man dead in a town in southern New Jersey.

As CBS2’s Dick Brennan reported, dashcam video shows the traffic stop and all the events that led to the shooting. But important questions have been raised into exactly what happened.

The incident happened on Dec. 30, but police had just released the officer’s dashcam video as of Wednesday. The entire encounter appears, but the video and audio are far from clear.

The dead man, Jerame Reid (picture), previously spent nearly 13 years in state prison for shooting at three New Jersey State Police troopers when he was a teenager, and was known by Officer Days from a drug possession and obstruction arrest over the summer.  More   Watch Video

patriotsWORCESTER - WBZ-TV’s Ken MacLeod spent some time with scientists and football players at Worcester Polytechnic Institute to find out.

Coach Chris Robertson is the boss of the football field. “It might be easier to grip, but not necessarily easier to throw,” Coach Robertson said of an under-inflated football.

And Professor Germano Iannacchione is the guru of physics. They bring two angles of tech expertise to “DeflateGate” from WPI, where the professor argues that deflating a prolate spheroid made of leather, only on game day, “might” help your quarterback and receivers in the cold and rain.

“But you’re just as likely, just because nobody has practiced it, to screw it up,” Iannacchione said.  More
