Black Bear yearling #16-2409 update

During the past two weeks, the veterinarians have darted and anesthetized Black Bear yearling #16-2409 every five days so that they could manage the bear’s deep leg wound. Dr. Ernesto was pleased with the healing progress of the wound and was pleasantly surprised on December 1 when he examined the bear’s leg again. At this point, the wound has healed well and only a small superficial injury remains; Dr. Ernesto feels that the yearling will continue to heal well in the Center’s Bear Complex. The bear has gained weight since admission but is still very thin.
