Montana game wardens on Wednesday captured a pair of orphaned black bear cubs near Rogers Pass on the Rocky Mountain Front.

The cubs became orphaned the day before when their mother was hit and killed by a pickup truck just east of Rogers Pass on Highway 200.

“We located their den and found both cubs in it,” said Fish, Wildlife and Parks Game Warden Brady Murphy.

The cubs were just a couple of months old. Murphy estimated their weight at about five pounds each.

They will be taken to FWP’s wildlife center in Helena.
