ADF&G shoots bear cubs in Anchorage after death of mother

Posted: July 7, 2011 - 5:59pm

ANCHORAGE — A state wildlife biologist shot and killed two orphaned bear cubs after a resident killed the cubs’ mother about three weeks ago, leaving the young bears to fend for themselves.

Jessy Coltrane of the Alaska Department of Fish and Game said that without the mother, the cubs would have eventually been killed by another bear or died of starvation.
