On April 10, a citizen found a lone bear cub near a road. There was no sign of a sow or any other cubs nearby. The Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries was called, and after staying the night with a permitted wildlife rehabilitator, the cub was transported by VDGIF officers on the morning of April 11.

Wildlife rehabilitator Brie and Dr. Ernesto examined the male cub when he arrived. The cub was bright and alert, and didn’t have any injuries. Weighing in at 2.4 kg, the cub is the largest of the three currently residing at the Wildlife Center. The cub will be introduced to the two other cubs tonight.

Your donation will help provide this young bear cub with special care. Thanks for your support!
