Black Bear #16-0389 and his new family were released back to the wild on May 4. VDGIF Black Bear Project Leader Jaime reports that the cub was very feisty and doing really well.
On April 30, a female Black Bear cub was admitted to the Center after she was found in Greene County, Virginia.
Black Bear yearling #16-0354 (Orange Tag) has been recovering well so far at the Wildlife Center. The bear is eating all of his food, producing normal feces, and appears to be ambulating normally in the Center’s bear enclosure.
The goal of the Center is “to treat to release” – to restore patients to health and return as many as possible to the wild. In rare instances, the Center has the opportunity to track eagles after their release. Click here to follow these former eagle patients.
