Black Bears at the Wildlife Center of Virginia

May 25, 2012

These are screen captures of 2 bears at the Wildlife Center of Virginia.  The one on the left is a yearling (born in the winter of 2011) who was admitted to the Wildlife Center with a broken leg.  The little one on the right (a cub from this winter - 2012) was orphaned.  They were introduced to each other gradually beginning on May 18, 2012.  They now seem to be getting along well - playing, snuggling and sleeping together - and sending the "cuteness meter" way off the charts.

Screen captures are the property of the Wildlife Center of Virginia

More information on the bears from the Wildlife Center of Virginia website:   Black Bear #12-0189   Black Bear cub #12-0634

These 2 bears can be seen on the Wildlife Center of Virginia Critter Cam. They alternate cam time with the eagle cam and the owl cam.
