The mother was killed and the cubs, though alive, are not counted in the Yellowstone Ecosystem…SAD!!!!
CODY, Wyo. —
Wildlife officials in Wyoming say two grizzly bear cubs from the state are being sent to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo.
The Wyoming Fish & Game Department said Wednesday that the mother of the cubs was euthanized after repeatedly causing property damage and other problems. She was captured Aug. 7 in the Shoshone (shoh-SHOH’-nee) River valley in the northern part of the state.
Female grizzlies that are captured three times because of problems can be euthanized after a consultation with federal wildlife officials.
The male and female cubs each weigh about 50 pounds. Their names haven’t been released.
