We have an update on the three little bears and their Mama who were dining on garbage can buffets in Iroquois Falls.

MNRF outreach specialist Karen Passmore says the cubs were born last year, and the sow was trying to send them off to establish their own territories as adults.

“So knowing this, MNRF was able to trap two of the three yearlings and relocate them north of Cochrane,” Passmore continues. “But due to the extreme heat we’ve been experiencing, the remaining traps were pulled.”

“Once the temperatures cool a little bit, they’ll be able to reset the traps and then hopefully will be able to trap the remaining bears and relocate them.”

In hot weather, a bear is at risk if it spends any amount of time inside the live trap.
