He fell asleep at the fire, and there was no food or mess around. This is a report from people that were there. This is a very sad situation none the less and should be treated as such. The bears were probably shot because you do not want a bear to create a habit out of this sort of thing.
Steventy they are not needlessly killed every year by hunters. Black bear is actually very good tasting meat, and feeds lots of families a year. I for one make sausage, salami, ground and hams out of black bear. To each there own, some might not find it appetizing but, I think its better than store bought meat. I would say almost all of resident hunters I have met use the meat from bears they harvest.
