An orphaned bear cub from the Eagle area is at the Alaska Zoo. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the young black bear will be kept at the facility in Anchorage, while a search is conducted for a permanent home.
Another orphaned Alaska bear cub needs a home. The young black bear found near Eagle is the 8th the state has dealt with this year. The other seven cubs, all but one black, including a trio rescued in Galena in September, have been placed in lower 48 wildlife care facilities. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the fate of the latest orphaned cub is uncertain.
State Fish and Game biologists are in Galena trying to capture 3 orphaned bear cubs. The state initiated the effort after the cubs mother was reported killed by a local resident. As KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, the state is also working to find the animals a new home.
