HINSDALE, N.H. (AP) - New Hampshire officials say they used doughnuts to lure a 6-month-old bear cub from a tree that it had stayed in for two days after its mother was killed.

State Fish and Game Capt. Kevin Jordan says the female cub's mother had been hanging around the neighborhood because people were feeding it peanut butter sandwiches and other food. The mother bear had to be shot this week after it started raising havoc on a back porch.

The 20-pound cub has been turned over to a bear rehabilitator who is training it to live in the wild on its own.
