Black Bears of 2016 Release!

On June 30, the last of the 2016 bears were darted and loaded for release!

The bears were less than cooperative for the veterinary team; one bear refused to shift into the transition area for easier darting, and had to be darted in the main bear yard. The bears that were in the transition area still managed to climb trees to evade the team for a period of time, but in the end, all were successfully and safely darted, anesthetized, examined, ear-tagged, and loaded into a VDGIF vehicle for transport to the release site.
