RAPID CITY, S.D. (KEVN) - For the third year in a row, a popular event will be canceled here in the Black Hills.

The news comes as Bear Country USA announced they will not be hosting Cubfest this year.

With only 9 bear cubs at the wildlife attraction, officials are concerned for their health and well-being.

A greater number of cubs are needed for the large crowd the event draws in so they can be frequently rotated to rest.

With only a handful of babies, Bear Country said this is not feasible.
