The video tells the whole story. A black bear cub was orphaned and injured in Colorado’s Cameron Peak fire last year. He was found by wildlife officials, who treated his burns and cared for him all winter as he grew from 16 pounds to nearly 90 pounds. He was released this week into unburned forest near where he was found. Kudos to Colorado Parks and Wildlife. It’s heartening to see so many people caring so much about a single creature.

Something showing compassion and willingness to take time and energy to save one small creature caught in a situation it can’t understand – gives a bit of hope.

We need all the happy endings we can find!
I’m so glad for the cub –
So nice to see a happy story come out of that horrible fire, the largest in Colorado history.
We have some really good CPW agents in this Loveland- Estes area – with good meaning professional, caring, and ethical. These agents honestly do everything possible to save wild lives, such as with this juvenile fire survivor. It was great seeing this positive video. Thanks for sharing it, PT!
If you know any of those agents, please tell them how very much they are appreciated. This video made my

Oh good! Thanks. Those folks don’t get nearly enough recognition for what they do.
Awww…poor baby. So many frightened wildlife meeting a horrible end in these fires,
So many people were involved in caring for this cub. One less victim of those fires, thanks to them.
Hey..what was the deal a couple years back in Bailey..that hate crime attack on the Asian teen woman?
The stories I’ve seen still say there have still been no arrests, and “hate crime” is just a best guess. Sketches of suspects were released but I’ve no idea where police got the descriptions.
