Black Bear yearling #17-1767 Release

On Monday, October 16, Dr. Peach and Brie set the large VDGIF culvert trap to catch Black Bear yearling #17-1767 for release. Despite the tasty bait of fried chicken, the bear was not motivated to check out the trap until Brie added a slathering of peanut butter. On the morning of Friday, October 20, the bear took the bait and was successfully trapped!

A VDGIF biologist came to the Center to pick up the bear for release on the afternoon of October 20.

Black Bear cub #17-2035 update

Black Bear cub #17-2035 [Double Yellow Tags] has been doing well during the past two weeks in the Large Mammal Isolation enclosure. The bear is walking normally on his now-healed leg, and on October 19, the staff decided to move him to the Bear Complex. A live trap was set and baited in the Large Mammal enclosure; the cub took the bait and was easily trapped during the day. The cub was moved to the transition area of yard #1 so that he can see, smell, and interact with the other nine bear cubs for a day before they all have access to one another on October 20.

Great Horned Owl #17-0363 Release

Great Horned Owl #17-0363 was released on the evening of October 17 at James Madison’s Montpelier, in front of a crowd of about 75 people. Dr. Ernesto, the Center’s hospital director, performed the release honors; the owl flew off over a field and disappeared into the trees. Within a few minutes, a Red-tailed Hawk was seen – and heard! – reacting to the presence of the newest resident of the woods.

Bald Eagle #17-2469 update

On October 17, Bald Eagle #17-2469 was moved to flight pen A3, where Bald Eagle #17-1993 is also currently housed. The eagle is able to fly to the perches in the large flight space, though a formal daily exercise plan has not yet been started.

The eagle will need additional eye examinations during the next couple of months. The eagle can be identified by his “stripe”-patterned protective wing bumpers.

Bald Eagle #17-1993 update

On October 10, Bald Eagle #17-1993 was moved to flight pen A3. At first, the bird was not flying well, though was able to make it up to a high perch; the rehabilitation team slowly started a daily exercise regimen for the eagle. About a week later, the staff reported that the eagle was making improvements; the eagle is able to fly from end-to-end in the large flight pen. The rehabilitation team will continue exercise, gradually pushing the bird to fly more laps to prepare him for release.

Bobcat #17-2495 update

On October 16, Dr. Ernesto took Bobcat #17-2495 back to surgery to replace the pin stabilizing the bobcat’s fractured leg. The pin was fully removed, though attempts to replace the IM pin were unsuccessful; there was a large amount of callus already present over the bone fragments, which made placing the pin difficult. Dr. Ernesto decided to close the bobcat’s incision and to allow the fracture to continue to heal; the wire in the cat’s leg should offer enough stabilization since the bone already has evidence of healing.
