A glacier bear cub, an adult black bear and an adult glacier bear have been spotted in the Mendenhall Valley for the past several months, according to Neil Barten, a local biologist with the State Department of Fish and Game. Barten said Fish and Game currently has no plans to trap the bears because they have been hard to track and have kept a low profile in the last two weeks. But, Barten said, should Fish and Game get a better bead on the bears' whereabouts, biologists would be willing to move them.
