ROANOKE, Va. (WFXR) — On Wednesday, a black bear cub spent the night at the Southwest Virginia Wildlife Center of Roanoke before she was taken to the Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro. Now, you can watch the baby bear on the Wildlife Center’s “Critter Cam.”
The center says the female cub was found in a backyard in Grundy on Monday, April 6.
The cub has since been given an identification number, 20-0384, and joined four other cubs in the Large Mammal Isolation enclosure at the Wildlife Center of Virginia.
At some point later this year, the center says will move the cubs will be moved to an outdoor bear yard — a half-acre area of grasses, shrubs, brush, and trees. However, according to the center, these cubs won’t be ready for release back into the wild until April 2021.
