JEMEZ MOUNTAINS, NM-(Ammoland.com)- Exactly one week after an adult female black bear was euthanized following an attack on a woman participating in a marathon event on the Valles Caldera National Preserve near Los Alamos, New Mexico Department of Game and Fish conservation officers dispatched the message so many were hoping to hear, “We’ve got them. We caught the cubs!”

Last Thursday, a National Park Service (NPS) biologist spotted the cubs and contacted the Department. Officers responded only to find they had once again managed to slip away. Over the next few days, efforts increased to find the cubs and on Saturday, it paid off when the Department’s tracker and an officer located the cubs.

Using dogs, the cubs were treed late Saturday afternoon, climbing nearly 90 feet above the forest floor.
