Black Bear cub #17-0606

On April 24, a small Black Bear cub was found by the side of the road in Rockbridge County, Virginia, and arrangements were made to transport the cub to the Center the same evening.

Dr. Ernesto, the Center’s Hospital Director, examined the female cub upon admission. He found that the cub was thin and dehydrated, weighing in at 1.62 kg. Blood work revealed mild anemia; otherwise, the cub did not have any injuries, and is generally considered healthy. Dr. Ernesto put an orange identification tag in the cub’s right ear.
