A curious cub found himself trapped in a Nevada Department of Wildlife trap on Washington Street in Carson City, Monday. The 35 lb cub was discovered by wildlife officers, and then the mother and sibling were found nearby.
The sow, an 11 year old black bear, had been moved once before, 7 years ago. All three of the bears were tranquillized and moved to land near the Hobart Reservoir. “This was an actual best-case result for these bears, that we were able to tranquilize them, extricate them from civilization and release them into the wild,” said Nevada Department of Wildlife spokesman Chris Healy.
