Orphaned Black Bear Cub ‘Apprehended’ At The US-Canada Border

Last year, when the Canda-US border was closed to non-essential travel due to the pandemic, it seems like on furry guy didn’t get the message.

The young bear cub had attempted to cross the border between BC and Alaska, but it seems as though he didn’t have the right paperwork to get over.

It wasn’t very clear where the young black bear was headed to, whether it was into Canada, or further into Alaska.

Often bears will approach places where humans may be, such as the border crossing kiosk, to find easy food like garbage. It was the time of year that bears begin to fatten up.

The cub was safely captured and moved to the Northern Lights Wildlife Society where they will look after her for the winter as she hasn’t put enough weight to survive the hibernation.

When it gets to spring again, she will be released back into the wild.
