Injured Bear Halts Lake Tahoe Ski Run Temporarily

Posted: Updated:

Part of a ski resort at Lake Tahoe was temporarily shut down while wildlife officials captured an injured bear cub that was wandering around a mountaintop chairlift.
 
The 1-year-old bear was being treated on Tuesday at Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care for a puncture wound to its right shoulder and scraped up pads on the bottom of its feet.
 
Nevada Department of Wildlife biologist Carl Lackey says the bear was hanging Monday out at Heavenly Mountain Resort at South Lake Tahoe, Calif., near the spot where skiers disembark from the Powderbowl Express chairlift. He says it was approaching people and seemed lethargic.
 
Lackey shot the bear with a tranquilizer dart and the ski patrol helped him transport it downhill. A veterinarian thinks the animal may have fallen out of a tree. (AP)
