Weighing only 13 pounds, this baby bear managed to enter a home through a cat door in search of safety.
The cub's mother could not be found and it was brought to NIWRA for assessment, stabilization and rehabilitation.

DID YOU KNOW? Small cubs are fed a special formula containing yogurt, cottage cheese, applesauce, eggs, milk for bears, puppy food and nutritional supplements. Fruits and vegetables are added to the diet as the cub grows.
The cub will stay at NIWRA until its release to the wild where it belongs in 2023.
