Bear cub

The bear cub is loving her dinner and accommodations at the Wildlife Center. She will be transferred Friday to be with a sow. Rehabbing the right way is about networking and giving wildlife the best chance of survival.To donate:Swvawildlifecenter.org

Black Bear

Feeding a Black Bear cub was an exciting time for us. The cub at 3lbs. was extremely strong and capable enough to grasp the bottle pulling it back, giving us a glimpse of the power the adults exhibit. Since she could not be reunited with her mother she will be raised by a surrogate sow to give her the best outcome.To donate:Swvawildlifecenter.org
