Just days after transporting a bear cub back to Riding Mountain National Park from just north of Brandon, authorities were called to capture a second cub.

The bear was spotted in a tree on a property line near Forrest, Manitoba late Sunday afternoon.

The furry critter is estimated to be 2-years-old.

The residents of the property in Forrest called authorities to deal with the bear.

No word if the second bear is related to the other cub that was captured and taken to the Park earlier last week.
