Two is Un-bear-able
Two black bear were removed from Woodland Hills after taking up residence in this small wooded community. The Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR) received a call over a month ago about a small black bear hanging around a Woodland Hills neighborhood. DWR personnel responded and set up culvert traps to hopefully relocate the nuisance bear. After several attempts, trapping the bear was unsuccessful. The DWR decided to call Wildlife Services who helped tree the bear with dogs. The bear was successfully immobilized and moved to a far away remote location.
Woodland Hills residents were happy to see the bear gone, only to get a surprise the next morning when another bear showed up in the same neighborhood. Trapping attempts were again made with no success. A few days later, a Woodland Hills resident found the bear getting into his garbage cans. His hound dogs treed the bear by his house which made it possible for DWR to immobilize it. This second bear was also relocated to a remote location. It is likely these two young bears were siblings.
