Two grizzly bears that made their way from the mainland to Cormorant Island have been successfully live-trapped.
The two bears were first spotted last weekend.
Gordon Hitchcock with the Conservation Service says it’s not uncommon for young adult male grizzlies to island-hop.
Alert Bay CAO Justin Beadle says they appreciate everyone’s cooperation as conservation officers worked to trap the bears.
The bears are being relocated back to the mainland.
