  • Colorado Parks And Wildlife Rescues Orphaned Bear Cub Injured In 416 Fire

An orphaned bear cub that suffered severe burns to her paws while trapped in one of the half a dozen significant wildfires that are scorching the U.S. state of Colorado is being nursed back to health. "But she's responding very well to treatment and by winter we believe we'll be able to return her to the wild".

As of Friday, the 416 fire burned more than 41,000 acres and was 37 percent contained, The Denver Post reports.

The cub was injured in the 416 fire near Durango.

Another wildfire in the southern part of the state destroyed an unknown number of structures and forced residents of 350 homes to evacuate, authorities said.

Firefighters spotted her wandering alone in a burned-over area north of Durango last week.

Officials responded June 22 and, found the cub in a tree and immobilized it with a tranquilizer dart.

The cub is 4 or 5 months old and weighed just 10 pounds when she was rescued.

"When the bear was brought in I wasn't sure if it was going to make it", said Michael Sirochman, manager of the Frisco Creek facility.

She said she had been arrested at demonstrations three or four times since she became politically active after Trump's election. Meyer, a political science professor at the University of California, Irvine, who has authored books on USA political protest.

It's unclear how the cub became separated from its mother. Additionally, five other Colorado wildfires prompted the evacuation of at least 650 homes.

The cub, who has been isolated from other bears at the facility for the time being, has been spending most of her time lying down and staying off her feet. She's being treated with salve, bandages, antibiotics and pain medication, and is eating solid food and a liquid milk replacement.

After the feet are healed, it will be placed in an enclosure with the four other cubs now at the facility.

"We have good luck returning young bears to the wild".

"We're very strict about minimising human contact".

CPW said that no decisions have been made as to how the bear will be released, but it's likely that after they begin to hibernate in late fall CPW officers will build a den close to the area where the bear was found.

"One concern about treating bears for injuries is that they could become habituated to humans which, in turn, can makes them unfit to return to the wild", officials stated.

In California, two adult bears that suffered third-degree burns in a wildfire previous year recovered and were released back into the wild.
