Grizzly cubs from triple mauling arrive at MT zoo
BILLINGS, Mont. (AP) – Three grizzly bear cubs whose mother killed one person and mauled two others in a late night attack at a Montana campground have arrived at their new home at ZooMontana.
Zoo executive director Jackie Worstell said Sunday the two female cubs and one male cub arrived malnourished and still with their winter coats – signs of stress Worstell said may help explain their mother’s unusually aggressive behavior.
Kevin Kammer, 48, of Grand Rapids, Mich., was killed and two people were seriously injured when the adult bear ripped into several tents Wednesday at the Soda Creek Campground near Cooke City.
The 300 to 400 pound sow was euthanized Friday.
Worstell says the cubs will remain in quarantine for at least 30 days to ensure they are disease-free.
