An update on the baby bear cubs

May 20, 2019

Thank you for your generous donation to Support Baby Animals at Tufts Wildlife Clinic! We would like to take this opportunity to provide you with an update on the four (4) baby bear cubs featured in our last two videos. The cubs are now approximately 3 months old, so they have been successfully transitioned to a Licensed Wildlife Rehabilitator for the next phase of their journey. This next phase will last until they are old enough to be on their own and re-released, which we anticipate will be sometime next year. This video was taken after they had been running around in their new enclosure for about an hour, but you can see how much they are enjoying their new digs! The bears have already gone for their first outdoor walk escorted through the woods. This guided walk allows them to explore the forest for smells, food, and experience tree climbing, as they would with their mother, so they are learning how to be bears. They also have a new friend who was added to the group who was a solo orphan, a young female that is smaller than these four, but all are getting along splendidly. We are so grateful for your support. Thank you again!

Thanks to you, we made it!

We couldn't have done it without you! Thanks to your support, we have reached our goal of $2,500! The orphaned baby bear cubs (seen here and in our first update) are still with us, so we are hoping to raise an additional $1,000 (or more!) to help offset the cost of this type of specialized care. Because of you, each bear cub has doubled in weight since their arrival at Tufts Wildlife Clinic. All 4 bear cubs (yes there are 4 of them) have successfully transitioned from bottle feeding to self-feeding, and are currently eating a diet of formula, rice cereal, dog kibble, and various fruits and berries. They are now able to spend time in a large outdoor pen where they are gaining valuable life skills like jumping and climbing that will be needed for them to survive in the wild. This type of care is expensive, so please help us exceed our goal today. Please share our crowdfunding link with family, friends and the animal lovers (like us!) in your circle. Thank you again. We are so incredibly grateful for your donations.

The response has been amazing! Because of you, Tufts Wildlife Clinic is able to save these orphaned baby bear cubs who recently arrived, lost and alone. Each day it costs approximately $70 to care for these cubs, but as you can see from the video, it has been well worth it. With your help, these little bears are thriving and now on their way to an eventual release back into the wild. Please help us keep the momentum going! Share with friends and family, post on your Facebook page, and keep passing the word along. On behalf of Tufts Wildlife Clinic and all of the baby animals you have helped save, a thousand thanks!
