This photo provided by the Nevada Department of Wildlife shows a black bear Wednesday, July 9, 2014,  on a Lake Tahoe beach in Glenbrook. The bear had to be killed by state wildlife officials because it had become a threat to public safety. It was the seventh bear the Nevada Department of Wildlife has captured at Tahoe in 10 days. The others were released back to the wild. Nevada Department of Wildlife officials say lingering drought is forcing bears to expand their search for food into urban areas.
