Black Bear cub #16-2441 update

The veterinary team have been monitoring Black Bear cub #16-2441 in the days following his admission; the bear did not have any signs of respiratory distress, despite the abnormal lung radiographs on admission. On November 25, the cub was darted and sedated for additional radiographs; Dr. Peach noted that the lung pattern on the radiograph actually appeared slightly worse than it did on admission. Dr. Peach explained that lung issues typically resolve more slowly and will continue to heal after the full course of antibiotics is given.
