Aggressive bear with cubs reported on Canfield Mountain

COEUR D'ALENE, Idaho - The U.S. Forest Service is warning the public of an aggressive bear reported on Canfield Mountain in Coeur d'Alene.

The public is asked to AVOID the upper parking area and trail system in this area, where an aggressive sow bear with an undetermined amount of cubs has been reported on Cave Trail.

The service is working closely with Idaho Fish and Game to assess the situation.

An encounter with a sow and cubs is extremely dangerous, as mother bears are very protective of their cubs.
