Black Bear Yearling #21-0153 Update

Black Bear yearling #21-0153 has made major strides toward a full recovery from the mange which was afflicting him at admission. Dr. Sarah noted that the bear's fur has markedly improved, which is a very positive sign for his overall condition. She also noted that he is bright, alert, responsive, and feisty, even more positive indicators that this bear is almost ready to return to the wild. The rehabilitators have begun to consider #21-0153 for release, which may happen as early as next week.
