Two Yearling Grizzly Cubs

Two Yearling Grizzly Cubs
These two yearling grizzly cubs were trapped at the same time their mother was trapped to be collared for the grizzly bear population trend study underway in northwestern Montana. The bears are shown here coming out of sedation. These cubs soon went on their own and began to frequent homes for food. They were repeatedly trapped and relocated but were not able to be rehabilitated and they eventually had to be removed from the population. One was euthanized and FWP was able to place the other at a zoo in Colorado Springs.
