3 Cubs Treed up a utility pole had to be rescued.

"it's suspected they were driven up after their mother was shot."

"There were originally three cubs, but sometime during Saturday night, one disappeared.

Around that same time, officials say people were harassing the bears by throwing rocks at them.

The Department of Natural Resources were hoping the mother would come back, but when she didn't, the department sent White and fellow lineman James Doucet to the rescue."

"The female cub has pellets lodged in her face and chest—likely after being shot."

"The cubs are now in the possession of the Magnetic Hill Zoo."

Don't know any details as to why they were shot at or harassed. It's not yet bear season, but not far off.

Pre-commercial thinning pays off. :)

 I wish those cubs could've thrown the rocks back (a little harder).

   I wish momma was there when they threw rocks at her cubs.  A mad momma is not a pretty sight.
I never met a tree I didn't like!!
