    On Our Way Back...

    On our way back from a release we received a call about a young bear cub in in Ft St James. After all permissions were in place, we met with the couple that had the cub along the way. It was obvious that the cub had experienced some trauma. One side of her head was swollen and movement and vision was obviously impaired. We assume that she was struck by a vehicle. Nerve damage is tricky to heal and mostly takes time, often up to 6 month.

    As a care giver this is really difficult as you form a bond with the knowledge that the outcome might not be positive. In "Roz's" case she was walking in circles for several weeks before slowly improving over time.

    After keeping Koda company for a while, a few weeks ago Roz was well enough to join our big group. She still has some signs of vision problems, but we now feel comfortable with the improvements and hibernation will likely do the rest (as we have seen with previous bears).
