Bear/ear tags?

I got a bear on my trail cams, he appears to have white tags in each ear. Just wondering what this means? Is he a nuisance bear that had to be relocated twice? I have no idea I'm hoping you do. Thanks

Re: Bear/ear tags?

It may be a nuisance bear, and it may not be. Sometimes when Game Commission traps are set the wrong bear is caught, they still get processed and tagged. Also could have been tagged as a motherless cub. I believe they tag both ears for a just in case one gets ripped out.

"A pine needle fell in the forest. The eagle saw it. The deer heard it. The bear smelled it."

Yes, they do tag both ears as insurance.
