Nevada Appeal photo chief Cathleen Allison earned The Associated Press’ Photo of the Month award for this photo of Carson City Sheriff’s deputies Charles Stetler, left, and Dan Ochsenschlager cooling off an unconscious bear cub the afternoon of Sept. 5 in Carson City.
A mother bear and two male cubs were tranquilized after roaming around a west Carson City neighborhood. Nevada Department of Wildlife biologists, who tagged, tattooed the bears, and took hair and blood samples, said the family will be relocated in the Carson Range on Sept. 6.
