Remember nuisance bear found on Mt. Lemmon in August?

To refresh your memory, a young female bear was spotted several times on Mt. Lemmon in August and was not afraid of humans.

In fact, the bear was seeking out human food.

Arizona Game and Fish captured this bear in Willow Canyon, about a mile away from Rose Canyon Lake.

The bear was named Lemmon and was relocated to Bearizona Wildlife Park.

On Friday, Bearizona tweeted that Lemmon recently made her debut in Junior Bears and is doing great! 

Those interested can visit Lemmon every day from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m.
