    A western Pennsylvania woman says a bear trap didn't prevent a burglar from entering her home.
    The New Castle News reports that the woman told police that she usually keeps a large bear trap at the bottom of her basement steps, but forgot to set it on Sunday, when a burglar stole tools from the home.

      Police say they suggested the woman find a different way of protecting her home from intruders.
