Orphaned Baby Black Bear Finds Refuge With California Rescue Center

In this adorable video, an orphaned baby bear named Tahoe is shown thriving under the care of the Lake Tahoe-based Bear League. Tahoe had been brought to the League a couple of months earlier by a kind-hearted stranger who found the cub clinging to her dead mother’s body, crying and starving.

We’ve had our little bear cub Tahoe, just over two weeks now. When we got her in she weighed 5.4lbs, and we weighed her twodays ago and she was 7.7lbs so she’s gained almost two and a half pounds in a two week period of time.Early December we will put her into hibernation, and with eventual release hopefully to be sometime in late January or early February 2015
