On Wednesday, conservation officers captured and relocated a brown-coloured black bear in the Mount Sima Road area.
“In the past two weeks, we got over 40 calls about this bear,” said Environment spokesman Dennis Senger.
“It was going into yards, looking in dumpsters and getting into garbage.
“We’ve moved it out of town.”
Another brown-coloured black bear has been wandering in the Porter Creek area.
It has been reported by residents along Grove, Ponderosa, Tamarack and Cedar Crescent.
It’s possible this is the same bear that was caught in a trap in July and somehow released.
“If this is the same bear, it may have learned the trap is not a nice place to visit,” said Senger.
“This will complicate matters.”
A trap is set up in the area with an open can of sardines to lure the bear.
“Hopefully the door comes down and that’s it,” he said.
“And then bear gets a nice ride into the countryside.”
There is another bear in the Lobird area.
Environment Yukon has mailed out information to all homeowners in the Yukon on the steps they can take to avoid attracting bears into their yards.
