Cinder heads home

On Friday, November 21, Dr. Kevin Willitts, the official volunteer veterinarian for Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, officially released Cinder from his medical care. On Sunday, she headed one step closer to home, via an 8-hour car ride to the Idaho Black Bear Rehabilitation Center, just outside Boise, where she will spend the rest of the winter.

Her enclosure at IBBR will be next to a first year bear cub for at least a short time, until they get to know each other. Over the next four months, her now-healed paws will have a chance to toughen up.

In the spring, Sally Maughan, founder of IBBR, will inform Washington wildlife bear specialist, Rich Beausoleil, when she is ready to go, then Rich will pick Cinder up and take her on her last car ride to release her in a suitable habitat where she will be free in the wild!

Click below to see a story on Cinder that CBS Evening News aired Sunday night.
