Black Bears #16-2448 and #16-2496 Release

On April 4, Black Bear yearlings #16-2448 and #16-2496 were picked up for release! Dr. Peach darted the two bears for a quick exam, weight, and re-tagging for release; bears rehabilitated at the Wildlife Center are generally released wearing a green ear tag in each ear. The VDGIF biologist from the Frederick County region picked up the bears to return them to the same general area where they were rescued.

Black Bear #16-2496 weighed in at 35.7 kg; bear #16-2448 weighed 37.7 kg.
