PHOENIX — Three juvenile male black bears were released back into the wild on June 13 by Arizona Game and Fish Department biologists after months of rehabilitation at the Southwest Wildlife Conservation Center in Scottsdale.

Two of the bears were orphaned early last year when the sow was fatally injured by a vehicle collision, and they were taken to Southwest Wildlife by the Navajo Nation.
