Challenges with Bears: Tips for the public after 3 black bears euthanized
Arizona Game and Fish Department explains public safety protocol for bears

Two orphaned bear cubs have been placed in the care of Bearizona wildlife rescue park in Williams after their mother was euthanized. The park said the 4-month-old black bears were rescued from a treetop in Arizona’s White Mountains and were so small a climber was able to lower them to safety in a backpack. The park says the Arizona Game and Fish Department was forced to euthanize the cubs’ mother after twice removing her from a residential area in the town of Pinetop-Lakeside. (Bearizona/Courtesy)
