Photo detail

Karelian Bear Dogs Sputnik, Dazzle and Rooster chase a 5-year-old, 225-pound black bear Monday near Hobart Reservoir after it was trapped near Aspen Park in the Gardnerville Ranchos Sunday afternoon. Bear dogs are commonly used as an 'aversive conditioning' tool during releases like this one to hopefully lessen bear/human interactions in the future.
