Orphaned Young Grizzlies Should Be OK

Grizzly Yearlings

Officials of the Idaho Department of Fish and Game say a pair of young grizzly bears, orphaned when their mother was shot and killed earlier this month, has an excellent chance for survival.  Spokesman Gregg Losinski says measurements taken of the young bears’ front paw pad prints are consistent with the size of the pads of yearling cubs. Losinski says that means biologists do not plan to capture the orphaned yearlings since they have a good chance of surviving in the wild.  He says experts believe that if these bears were captured, they would have to put in permanent captivity in a zoo or euthanized.  Meanwhile, Losinski says the shooting of the grizzly bear sow September 12th by an Island Park resident is currently under investigation by the US Fish and Wildlife Service.
