During the past week, the veterinary and rehabilitation staff have continued to monitor Black Bear Cub #21-0545's behavior and paw wounds.
Throughout the weekend, wildlife rehabilitation intern Ben carefully monitored Black Bear cub #21-0545 and worked through a method of delivering all of the bear's new medication in small servings of tasty formula "mush".
The staff have continued to carefully assess Black Bear cub #21-0545 and her increased amount of pacing. Sadly, the medication that the veterinary team started on June 3 seems to have had no effect. The staff will try one more different type of medication to see if that provides any relief.
The goal of the Center is “to treat to release” – to restore patients to health and return as many as possible to the wild. In rare instances, the Center has the opportunity to track eagles after their release. Click here to follow these former eagle patients.
