Sierra and Ursula, 9-month-old black bear cub sisters, soak in [auth] the sunshine at the Spring River Zoo, Thursday morning. According to Spring River Zoo Director Elaine Mayfield the new cub residents were captured in the Ruidoso area by personnel from New Mexico Game and Fish and brought to the zoo as a replacement for longtime black bear resident, Otto, who passed away from heart failure this past August at the age of 20. The cubs and their mother had become a nuisance in the Ruidoso area, scavenging for food by raiding trash bins which necessitated their capture and relocation. (Mark Wilson Photo)
