A man is accused of threatening to kill a bear after a Facebook post.
According to a complaint filed in U.S. District Court, Christopher Johnson posted a Facebook message Tuesday evening about the bear’s health status on a social media website called BearWeb.
It was accompanied by a photo of a bear, according to the complaint.
According the complaint, Johnson posted, “If you don’t come out of your shelter now, I am going to go kill this bear.”
After Johnson’s threat, BearWeb’s administrators immediately notified the FBI and authorities responded.
A Facebook spokeswoman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
