Black Bear yearling #17-1559 Release

Black Bear yearling #17-1559 was successfully released on August 10. Dr. Ernesto and outreach director Amanda were able to attend the release with Jaime Sajecki, Black Bear Project Leader with the Virginia Department of Game & Inland Fisheries. The bear was released in a remote area, with a pond and berry bushes nearby. 

The bear jumped out of Jaime’s truck and quickly ran down a path toward the pond – he then took a swim in the pond before climbing out and disappearing into the woods.
