Critter Cam 2

You are watching Bear Cam! The Wildlife Center is currently caring for 12 Black Bear cubs and one bear yearling in our two-acre Black Bear Complex. The cubs will be at the Center until they are released in the spring of 2017. 

Or ... you are watching Buttercup, the Center's education Black Vulture! Buttercup is a very handsome vulture who is human-imprinted and unable to return to the wild.
