Three orphaned juvenile grizzlies, that went missing after their mother was euthanized, were caught near Sundre on the weekend.
One male was trapped Saturday morning and the other male and female were captured Sunday.
On Friday, Fish and Wildlife officers shot the bear's mother after she mauled and killed a Didsbury man.
48-year-old Robert Wagner was attacked by the female grizzly while out hunting and was found dead in a wooded area on October 1, 2008.
All three cubs were caught in bear traps about 25 Km southwest of Sundre and were tranquilized and given a physical.
The little bears are in good condition and all three have been fitted with radio transmitters in their ears.
The bears are in transit and the plan is to keep the three little grizzlies together and relocate them to an area where there is no chance of human contact
