On May 21, Black Bear yearling #19-0328 was darted and anesthetized for a follow-up skin scraping and physical exam. Dr. Peach was pleased to find no mites on the bear, and no thickened or crusting skin. The yearling’s hair is growing back and is improving greatly.

Eagle Tracking

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.
