OSCEOLA, WI (WTAQ) - Wildlife workers have been trying to trap a family of black bears in Osceola that's been rummaging through garbage bins in search of food.  

A 300 pound mother and her two cubs have been seen a number of times in backyards, and close to homes in Osceola -- which is located in Polk County in far northwest Wisconsin.  

Police said they hope to round up the bears, and move them to a more isolated spot in the north.
