Mama Bear Caught 2 Days after Cubs

TWRA has caught the mother bear they believe was wondering around in Gatlinburg.

A crew go her on Ski Mountain Road early Saturday morning, after catching her two cubs Thursday.

They set up traps near a dumpster where the bears were known to rummage for food.

TWRA says the bears were a nuisance and believe that getting rid of the garbage will prompt the bears to go somewhere else.

The mama bear and her cubs have been moved to Monroe County.
