Bear Lift 1

On arrival we wittnessed the relocation of a bear. The images speak for them selves. Bears that become a nuisance to the local community are put in "jail" until a sponsor and the right time appear to airlift them to a new location a good distance away. The bear (a mle in this instance) is given a muscle relaxant and hence is fully aware of what's going on around him, but can't do anything about it. You can find out more about the history of this process at the link provided below.
This set contains 29 images
