On March 15, the Center admitted a female Black Bear yearling from Albemarle County. The bear had been spotted in a tree in a homeowner’s yard for several days; the homeowners thought the bear was lethargic, so they set a hunting dog box out one evening and were able to catch the bear.

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.
