BUTTE - A bear cub was captured on Friday in the garage of a home on the south side of Butte.
The black bear cub was captured by Montana Fish, Wildlife & Parks game wardens at about 10:00 a.m. in the area of Terra Verde Drive.
On Tuesday evening, game wardens found an adult black bear hiding in a another area of Butte; it eventually wandered off.
An FWP official said there were more reports of the adult bear following Tuesday's incident, and he set up a trap Thursday night, but the adult bear hasn't been caught as of Friday.
Wildlife officials warn that people should be aware of bears roaming into residential areas this time of year.
Anyone who sees a bear in a neighborhood should immediately call 911.
