Black Bear cubs of 2016 update: Release Plans

The release of many of the Black Bears of 2016 is happening soon — starting on April 13! Biologists with the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries will pick up eight bears next week and will transport them to three or four release sites.

Five of the bears will stay at the Center for now for additional skin scraping and testing, so that the veterinary team can learn more about the bears’ hair loss.
