Family and WV Bear Hunters Association donate mounted black bear to AG's office

Posted: Updated:

There was a new addition Monday to the State Capitol in Charleston.

The West Virginia Attorney General's office now has a new stuffed bear. It's courtesy of 18-year-old hunter Miranda Ware.

The West Virginia Bear Hunters Association along with Ware and her family are loaning the 200-pound female bear to the office so it may be displayed at the capitol.

The Ware bear will join a black bear already on display in front of the West Virginia Attorney General's office.

Earlier in August, the older bear was vandalized and part of its paw was removed. Since then, the office has implemented measures to ensure both bears are safe and not mistreated.
