Bear or dog damages vehicle

LIBERTY - A vehicle on Calvary Ridge Road was heavily damaged Tuesday by what police think may have been a bear or large dog.

Casey County Sheriff Jerry Coffman said the Chevrolet Tahoe was parked at the residence of Chris and Pam Morgan when the vandalism occurred. The grill, front fender and hood were damaged by what appeared to be claw marks.

"There were big dents on the vehicle," said Coffman. "It had to be a large dog or other kind of animal that caused it." Coffman said the damage will probably run more than $2,000.
