BooBoo Doing Much Better
Remember that black bear cub they found in a tree this past summer after a forest fire in the Salmon River area? His paws had second degree burns and he’d lost his Mom. Wildlife officials took him and treated his paws nursed him back to health. He got the nickname BooBoo. He’s been rehabilitating since September in the Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary near McCall, living in a two-acre enclosure with five other orphaned cubs. Snowdon board member Diane Evans-Mack says Boo Boo's paws are still sensitive but the cub is climbing trees, running around and playing with the other cubs. He’s still to small to be released so BooBoo will spend the winter at Snowdon and be released next June.
