WATCH: Yukon wildlife officials release mama bear and cubs

Environment Yukon posted a video on YouTube this week of something you don't see everyday: a mama black bear and two cubs being released into the wild far away from Whitehorse.

Environment Yukon posted a video on YouTube this week of something you don't see everyday: a video of a mama black bear and her two cubs being released far away from Whitehorse.

For weeks, the animals had been causing some trouble around the city, getting into garbage cans, and foraging along roads.

Relocation isn't always ideal, because there's no guarantee the bears will adapt to their new habitat, but the officer in the video says the bears will get a second chance at life.
