Black Bear Behind Leavenworth Bear Attack Dead with Cubs Sent to Rehabilitation
The black bear behind the bear attack in downtown Leavenworth Saturday has been lethally removed, with her cubs going to a rehabilitation facility.
King 5 News reports that around 7:30 a.m., a 68-year-old woman let her dogs out when a bear attached her and left her with non-life-threatening injuries.
This occurred in the 300 block of Commercial Street in Leavenworth, within the Enchantment area near Blackbird Island.
The Department of Fish and Wildlife said the bear was "lethally removed," and her two nine-month-old cubs were sent to PAWS wildlife rehabilitation facility.
