Escaped Bear Captured In Collier County
NAPLES, FL. -- Staff with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission caught the missing grizzly bear cub today that escaped in Collier County earlier this week.
“We’re very happy that we located the bear and will be able to return it safely to its home,” said Capt. Mitts Mravic, area supervisor for the FWC.
The bear escaped early Tuesday afternoon from A Grizzly Experience, a licensed facility in Golden Gate Estates.
“Neighbors reported a sighting last night. We focused our efforts in that same area today and were able to locate it,” Mravic said.
