Earlier this week, a plea was issued on social media for three orphaned bear cubs who needed to be relocated from a rehabilitation centre in Saskatoon. The black bears were brought to the Living Sky Wildlife Rehabilitation Centre after their mother was found dead from a gunshot, and conservation officers ordered the cubs to be moved elsewhere.
On Wednesday afternoon, the rehabilitation centre updated Facebook followers that a decision had been reached for the bear cubs:
We learned this afternoon that they will go to the Saskatoon Forestry Farm park and Zoo where they will be rehabilitated in quarantine, with no human contact except for one caregiver. While this is not the option we had been aiming for, we are very glad that they have a happy ending and Healing Haven Wildlife Rehab., had so much support that they have their Center almost finished upgrading and will have space for more bears in the future!
Animal lovers who were concerned that the bear cubs might be put down expressed relief over the plans which have been put in place. Living Sky Wildlife Rehabilitation thanked those who stepped up to help get the bear cubs to safety:
Wildlife Rehabilitation takes a lot of knowledge, experience, connections with other Rehabbers and, most importantly, cooperation and understanding from the public, government, and officials. We’re all part of the same team. Thank you everyone!
