(Payson, AZ)  --  We are learning new details about a bear that had to be put down. The Arizona Game and Fish Department put the bear down earlier this week near Payson, after it was spotted trying to push down the front door of a home.  The bear was reportedly seen in the area several times within a couple of days before it was euthanized.  It's the second time this week that a bear had to be put down. Officials say a bear in Anthem was killed because it had become too familiar with humans and that spells bad news for the animals and people.
