On July 27, a park ranger in Newport News rescued an adult Bald Eagle found on the ground, wet and unable to fly.
On the morning of July 31, Drs. Helen and Dana decided to move Black Bear cub #15-1651 to the Black Bear Complex with the other bear cubs.
Black Bear cub #15-0224 has spent the past eight days (since July 23) in the chute of the Large Mammal Isolation facility to limit his mobility and allow staff to observe his movement. The cub was initially vocal following the separation from his “brothers” but he appears to be settling in.
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.
