Bear Mauling And Trapped Cubs Near Yellowstone

Bear Mauling And Trapped Cubs Near Yellowstone

(AP) - Montana wildlife officials have
captured a female grizzly and two of her three cubs in a campground near Yellowstone National Park where a man was killed and two others injured in a bear attack.
Fish, Wildlife and Parks Warden Capt. Sam Sheppard says the sow was captured in a culvert trap Wednesday evening and two of her
three cubs were captured overnight.
Sheppard said Thursday that officials are confident they captured the offending bear because she was caught at the same
site.
Sheppard described the attacks as highly unusual and predatory,
as opposed to an attack in which a sow might be protecting her cubs from a perceived threat.
Officials have said the sow will be killed. State and federal wildlife officials will determine the fate of the cubs. Sheppard says they are unlikely to be returned to the wild.
