Grizzly bear cubs to leave Alaska Zoo

Posted: Tuesday, September 23, 2008

ANCHORAGE - The Alaska Zoo in Anchorage will be saying goodbye to two grizzly bear cubs.

The cubs will leave Thursday for a zoo in Indianapolis.

The cubs were taken in by the Alaska Zoo after their mother was shot and killed in August by the Alaska Department of Fish and Game.

The sow was suspected of mauling a bicyclist in an Anchorage park.

DNA tests indicated another bear had mauled the mountain biker.

FedEx will move the cubs accompanied by two zoo keepers from Indianapolis.
