ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) - Two more bears decided to head into Albuquerque Wednesday morning. One of them was caught and the other is likely on its way back up the mountain.
Officials caught a female bear who appeared injured and severely malnourished.
She was found at a home near Tramway and Indian School.
A neighbor says she followed her up the arroyo and into this yard where she just laid down.
APD officers stood guard until Game and Fish arrived to tranquilize her.
Then, they gave her antibiotics, treated a couple of her wounds and tagged her.
"We were surprised to find she's old only weighs about 100-125 pounds, obviously emaciated because of drought," Roger Salter said.
Officials say her teeth were just nubs and she had an abscess, and say it was impossible for her to survive any longer in the wild.
They estimate that she was about 25-years-old, which is considered pretty old for wild bear standards.
Officials decided it was best to euthanize her.
Another bear was spotted along Tramway Wednesday morning, near Academy.
Police and Game and Fish officers were not able to catch up with it.
Game and Fish officers say they've been getting calls daily about bears, most of them in the northeast heights.
