With the help of the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources, Moab City Police tranquilized the female bear and are moving it to the Book Cliffs.
As of Monday morning, Sept. 9, the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources was “developing a plan to deal with” a bear that was on the loose near Mulberry Lane, according to Moab City Police.
The bear was first reported Sunday, Sept. 8. Police advised locals to “use caution” if they happened to be in the area, including Rotary Park.
“Keep pets inside and children close to an adult,” Moab City Police said in a Facebook post, announcing the presence of the bear.
