The Arizona Game and Fish Department is reminding the community to be "Bear Aware" after one bear had to be relocated over the weekend.

AZGFD posted to Twitter that a 75 lb female bear was trapped and relocated off Mt. Lemmon. Photos and video taken by Dave Savage were shared on Twitter.

The three-year-old bear was relocated to the Galiuros Mountains and is said to be in good health. AZGFD says this could be the same bear that was spotted near a youth camp on June 20th.

If you see a bear, call 623-236-7201 to report it.
