Troublesome bear given a time out at the Canadian border
A bear who's been teaching her cubs bad habits has been relocated from an area where they'd been raiding trash bins and bird feeders near Dartmouth College.
Officials said the sow nicknamed Mink was captured Friday and hauled north to Coos County, near the Canadian border, where she was released with a tracking collar.
Andy Timmins, bear project leader for the New Hampshire Fish and Game Department, tells the Valley News that he hopes the bear stays put. But, he added, "I'm not sure this is the end of the story."
The newspaper reports that two of the bear's four cubs also were captured, and officials are trying to round up the other two. They're going to a center that rehabilitates orphaned cubs.
