Lynnwood-based PAWS is working to rehabilitate a black bear cub that was found along the side of a highway in Corvalis, Oregon.
She was found starving and weak with a male sibling, who did not survive. It’s unknown how the cubs became separated from their mother.
“Weighing in at a little less than four pounds, (she) is among the smallest that we have received. At this size she is tiny enough to be scruffed like a puppy,” PAWS Naturalist Kevin Mack said.
PAWS has been caring for the cub for nearly three weeks. She’s gaining weight and getting stronger every day. If all goes well, she will return to the wild in Oregon sometime next spring.
