The first cub to arrive at ABR in 2022 was admitted on March 4th. It is a male Cub of the Year, born in January, so he is about 7 weeks old. He was rescued in Cocke County, TN after his mother was hit by a car, and locals took him to the police, who subsequently called TWRA.

The tiny cub weighs 1.8 pounds and is ABR #346. His nickname is Peace, since our world needs more of that now. Wildlife officers are looking for a potential foster mother, but the window of time is short. We’ll keep our fingers crossed and will update you as needed.

ABR #346 – Peace Bear at the University of Tennessee College of Veterinary Medicine.

So the 2022 year has begun for ABR. We sincerely hope that a foster mom can be found, in which case our continuing services won’t be needed, and little Peace Bear will have the best possible outcome, but time will tell. Stay tuned.
