Grizzly quadruplets captured after mom disappears

SITKA, ALASKA Three brown bear cubs have been captured, and a fourth has died, after their mother was possibly killed in a Sitka neighborhood.
Officials with the state department of Fish & Game decided to trap the cubs on Sunday (8-16-09) after it became apparent that the sow was no longer with them. The cubs have been temporarily housed, but their future is by no means certain.
