The bear cub is being cared for at the Oregon Department of Fish and Wildlife Facilities, but will likely not be returned to the wild because of his inability to care for himself without human aide. The cub's health is being evaluated, and if he has developed significant health issues, he may have to be put down, The Oregonian reported. The ODFW has contacted local zoos to find a long-term home for the recovering cub.
Interfering with peaceful animals only makes things worst for them. In a recent case, an entire family of black bears were almost euthanized after people started swarming around them to get pictures of the cubs.
If an animal appears to be injured, contact your local wildlife department. Trying to help the animal yourself will only create more problems for the little guy down the road.
