Idaho man on trial for killing bear to protect his family 

DIM BULB: A north Idaho man is being put on trial for killing a grizzly bear that wandered onto his 20-acre property while several of his children were playing outside. Jeremy Hill’s community overflowed the courtroom when he was arraigned and has raised $20,000 for his defense. Hill faces as much as a year in prison for the federal misdemeanor of shooting a threatened species. His lawyer will argue for him on the basis of self-defense and protection of family.
