And now the mom’s got a fancy collar on!

Andrew Timmins, the bear project leader with the New Hampshire Department of Fish and Game, steps over a tranquilized black bear in Hanover, N.H., on April 13, 2018. Nancy Comeau with USDA wildlife services keeps a hand on the bear after the bear had been moved onto her side. Behind them is bear expert Ben Kilham, of Lyme, N.H., and Will Staats, a regional wildlife biologist with New Hampshire Fish and Game. The bear was tranquilized so she could be fitted with a radio collar and an ear tag. She has four cubs. (Valley News – Jennifer Hauck) Copyright Valley News.
