(WLTX) - Six captive black bears were voluntarily turned over by their owners to the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources.

The bears were transported to a 720-acre wildlife sanctuary in Colorado, where they have begun a new life. Three of the bears came from Spartanburg County and three from Greenville County. 

The bears range in age from 7 to 23 years. 

They were picked up by wildlife and law enforcement from the state Department of Natural Resources who then transported the bears in a 25-hour drive to Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado.
