Rapid City, SD. — Two bear cubs escaped from Bear Country USA on Sunday evening for a short excursion in a back yard about a block away from the wildlife park.

A man spotted the cubs in a neighbor’s backyard and called police.

Pennington County Sheriff’s Deputy Kylie Kintigh arrived at the scene, but her presence didin’t seem to effect the cubs, who instead of making a run for it, simply meandered around, following the deputy and playing around her squad car.

Park workers arrived and gently sedated the cubs and returned them to the park.
