Episode One of UNTAMED focuses on Black Bears. In this episode, Wildlife Center staff members illustrate what it’s like to care for Black Bear cubs, explain how we’re working to understand and treat mange in wild bear populations and demonstrate what you should do if you encounter a Black Bear in need of help.

VA Department of Game and Inland Fisheries [now VA Department of Wildlife Resources] Black Bear biologist Jamie Sajecki gives us perspective on feeding wildlife, and our host Ed Clark explains our roles in being good bear neighbors.
