Hanover's Rogue Bear Cubs Captured and Released, Fish & Game Says

May 30, 2017


The bear cubs and their mother had entered a Hanover home earlier this month.

Three juvenile bears in Hanover that were initially targeted to be destroyed have been trapped and relocated.

New Hampshire Fish & Game had said last week the three bears and their mother had to be killed, after two of the cubs entered a home. But Governor Chris Sununu then intervened, saying the bears should be released in a remote location.

 Mark Ellingwood with New Hampshire Fish & Game says the bears were released in an undisclosed location in the North Country. The bears were tagged to aid in future tracking. The bears’ mother hasn’t been accompanying the juveniles in recent days, and has not yet been captured. Fish & Game will resume efforts to trap her this week.
