BURLINGTON -

Officials say they're trying to trap a bear in Litchfield County that killed five goats at a farm.

Grazin' Goats Farm in Burlington posted on Facebook that the bear scaled a 6-foot fence to get to the goats on Sunday.

DEEP says officials are working with the farm to prevent this from happening again.

They say the bear was "doing what bears do," and the attack does not mean the bear is a danger to people.
