TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - Search and Rescue teams had a busy day in the mountains around Tucson this weekend.  

First the Pima County Sheriff's Department had to air lift a hiker out of Redington Pass on Sunday afternoon.  The woman injured her ankle while she and a group of friends were walking their dogs.  One of the dogs also had to be carried to safety. 

Shortly after this rescue, crews were able to find and rescue a 21-year-old woman who was reported missing near Tanque Verde Falls.  

The last rescue occurred as a 57-year-old man was rescued after he broke his ankle while hiking Romero Trail, north of Tucson.

    It may be bad news for a bear spotted several times in an area in Rio Rico the last few weeks, state wildlife workers may have to put it down.  However, they may not have to kill it, IF neighbors change their ways.
