Ohio zoo will house cubs of bear euthanized after hiker death in Yellowstone

General August 14, 2015

Two female grizzly bear cubs orphaned after their mother was euthanized because she was linked to the fatal mauling of a hiker in Yellowstone National Park will be moved to a zoo in Toledo, Ohio, zoo officials said on Friday. The cubs, both less than a year old, were orphaned when their 259-pound (117-kg) mother was killed on Thursday after DNA testing proved she was involved in the death of hiker Lance Crosby, 63. The 50-to-60 pound (23-to-27 kg) cubs cannot survive on their own in the wild and will be transferred to a captive facility first before arriving at the Toledo Zoo in the fall, zoo officials said.
