COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Colorado Parks and Wildlife officers are relocating a pair of orphaned bear cubs onto Pikes Peak Friday.

The cubs, each weighing about 100 pounds, will be taken to a den site on the mountain, placed inside and left to spend the remainder of the winter.

They will be getting a GPS transmitter attached to their ears so CPW can track them once they come out of hibernation in the Spring. The transmitters were bought by the Cheyenne Mountain Zoo.
