Orphaned cubs in Kodiak will have new home, if they show

Posted: July 26, 2013 - 12:01am

KODIAK — The four bear cubs orphaned when their dump nuisance mother was killed have a free ride to Sweden. All they have to do is show up for it.

KMXT reports (http://is.gd/rOowmI) the Alaska Department of Fish and Game personnel are trying to capture the cubs in Old Harbor, but they remain elusive.

The four cubs faced the same fate as their mother until people and corporations stepped in. Once captured, the bears will be flown to a temporary home in Anchorage until they can be sent to Sweden.

The cubs have to be corralled by hand. However, the bears were nowhere to be found Wednesday, possibly staying in the shade because of hot temperatures.

State wildlife officials will be on standby all weekend in case the cubs show up.
