In my opinion yes to both but I would take a frame of larva and eggs from nuc to put into the damaged hive for the colony to make a new queen--if no eggs and larva are left.
Bears are bad here this year also, we just finished bringing back to my home yard two hives that were located at my daughters--her husband saw a black bear real close to the hives and luckily their dog chased it off today. Was not worth the risk leaving the hives there after that event. Also a bear was within 300 yards of my home hives last evening.
Today I mowed around the electric fence to make sure no weeds were touching.
"Younz" have a great day, I will.
