Three bears safely removed from Beckley neighborhood

Posted:

BECKLEY (WVVA) - Once upon a time, there were three bears that were safely returned to the wild after being spotted roaming a residential area in Raleigh County.

Beckley Police officers spotted the 150-pound mother and her two cubs in a brushy lot in the Massy and Russell Street area around 8:45 a.m. Monday. 

Approximately one hour later, the Beckley PD and West Virginia DNR officers were able to tranquilize all three bears.

The bears were checked for injuries and determined to be unharmed. They were then transported to a safe location to be released back into the wild.

There's no word if the bears had porridge waiting for them when they returned home.
