Black Bear cub #16-1713 update

Black Bear #16-1713 made it through the weekend! The cub is still in critical condition, but has made some small improvements and is also eating some soft food on her own. Dr. Peach repeated radiographs on Saturday and noted that the bear’s chest and abdomen looked better than they did upon admission; the bear’s blood work had also improved with a higher red blood cell count. However, as the bear began to move around more, Dr. Peach noted that the bear was favoring her right front leg, which remained very swollen.
