Three Orphaned Bear Cubs Receive Care at the Oregon Zoo

On February 21, 2014, three little orphaned black bear cubs were brought to the Oregon Zoo veterinary medical center by wildlife officials who believe the cubs were orphaned when their mother was scared off by loggers. The cubs will be treated and cared for until they are healthy enough to make their way to their permanent home in Texas.

These little bears have a story very similar to the three cougar cubs who were also brought to the Oregon Zoo for care before they moved to their permanent home in North Carolina.
