San Luis Obispo Cub Returned to the Wild

As of this past Thursday (March 29, 2012), the San Luis Obispo cub was successfully released back to the wild.

The image below shows Barry Trammell and Dr. Kevin Willits moving the bear cub down from her perch in LTWC’s bobcat cage in order to prepare her for release.

The black bear cub originally arrived at LTWC weighing only 16 pounds, and with a severe injury under her chin that made it impossible for her to swallow. When the Department of Fish and Game picked her up this past Thursday, she weighed in at 35 pounds — a healthy bear ready to live life outside of LTWC.
