Buttercup Bear after 10 days care at ABR.

If you compare these photos with the photos taken when the 2 orphaned cubs arrived on August 22nd, you can see that they are already looking better.  Just shows what plenty of food and rest can do.  They are safe and free from the stresses of trying to keep themselves away from potential predators while hunting for food.  The curators report that these little bears are eating well.  It’s easy to see the results.  They still have a long way to go and a lot of weight to gain before they will be ready for release back into the wild, but they are on their way!
