Huntingdon County WCO Amy Nabozny recently captured a 300-pound sow reported as a nuisance bear. Upon processing the bear it was determined that the sow still was lactating, and it had to be returned to the capture site. Nabozny also reports that mange in bears seems to be a bad problem in the Warriors Mark and Spruce Creek areas. If you see a bear with mange, please report it. They can be treated if mange is caught before it gets too bad.
