Rescued Lost And Injured Bear Cub Will Be Released Into The Wild After Winter

An injured and lost bear cub was rescued this week by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. The female cub was wondering around for days in the Electra Lake area, getting into the bird feeders. The poor cub had cut injuries on her paws. And though there's no way of knowing exactly what happened to her, it is assumed that she is one of the survivors from the fires who got lost and couldn't find her way back to her family. Regardless, we are happy to hear that the cub is now in good hands, is being taken care of by capable people, and will be released back into the wild once she'll be healed. 

As reported by The Journal, Joe Lewandowski, a CPW spokesman, said in an email to The Durango Herald: "It had been getting into bird feeders in the area... It's not unusual for bears to go on walkabouts occasionally during the winter," Lewandowski added. "But they usually find a way back to their dens. This one didn't."

According to an official Facebook post, wildlife officials decided that the best course of action for the cub is to be taken into the Frisco Creek Wildlife Rehabilitation Center where the "staff will further evaluate and treat its injuries. The young bear will spend the rest of its' hibernation at the facility and be released back into the wild in the spring."

We are so happy to hear that the sweet cub is getting the help that she needs and that she will be released back into the wild. We wish her a quick and easy recovery and thank everyone involved in helping her!

Awwdorably Wholesome Bears Waving Hello

There's a reason that people love bears as much as they do. The myth of the cuddly bear runs strong in our society. I mean, look at them. How can these huge bear-hugging animals be in any way dangerous? They were obviously designed for hugs. Cleary. How can you even argue with that? 

They're the cutest, the sweetest, and they're infinitely polite. Look at them waving! Just look at them, we dare your heart not to melt. It's impossible. It's a total dream to have a bear wave at us (and also give us a hug, but we'll settle for a wave for now). The cuteness is simply overwhelming.

Celebrating National 'Hug A Bear Day' With Adorable Bear Cub Pics

It's National Hug A Bear Day! And we here at Cheezburger are celebrating! Now, it's important to remember that you should actually go out and hug a bear. That is a bit dangerous at the end of the day, no matter how cute and cuddly bears may appear. 

No, National Hug A Bear Day is actually a day that refers to teddy bears and is meant to celebrate hugging! Yeah, you heard right. On this day, you aren't supposed to go out and hug actual bears. The way to celebrate National Hug A Bear day is by hugging your teddy bear, or by hugging your friend's teddy bear, or giving a big ol' 'bear hug' to one of your friends or family members. 

That doesn't mean that actual bears shouldn't be celebrated, of course, since bears are unbearably awesome. So, since we can't come give y'all bear hugs right now, as a compromise, we've decided to give you an adorable collection of some of the most teddy bear-like looking bear cubs instead.

Silly But Adorable Animals Who Suck At Hide And Seek

Some animals may be masters at playing hide and seek, but not these ones. Nope. These cuties, fierce as they may be, truly suck at the art of stealth. They're trying their best though, and we love them for it. 

Even the cats, animals who, in nature, are some of the stealthiest, most gasp-inducing creatures of all, have really failed in these pics. Then again, they may think they're fierce, but we know that our tiny widdle kitty babies are the clumsiest, funniest, most adorable animals of all, so of course they suck at hiding

All of these animals are the best at making a smile find its way onto your face, so enjoy these silly but adorable animals and have an amazing weekend!

Panda Memes Are Always Adorable

Ah pandas... if we had to pick one wild animal to cuddle, they might just be it. And listen, we know they can be dangerous, but they're just so adorable, of course we would want to cuddle them. We're the same people who'd want to cuddle lions though, so maybe we're not the most objective judges. 

Pandas are just so fluffy, they seem so sweet, they're unfortunately still at risk, and they're also huge messes in pictures which makes them extremely memeable. We've decided to show some love to this cuddly, clumsy, and absolutely adorable big bear by giving you the most pandabulous memes today. We also wish you a wonderful weekend with many, many enormous feel-good bear hugs.

Sleeping Man Woken Up By Bear Caught On Security Camera

Yesterday, Matthew Bete was taking a nap by his pool when, out of nowhere, a black bear walked onto his property through a gate. The bear immediately heads for Matthew's pool, taking a long, long drink from it. He then turns around, spots Matthew, and quietly walks over to him, sniffing his foot and gently reaching out to touch it. Matthew, stirred by the touch, wakes up startled and scares the bear off. And what else does he do immediately after? Take his phone out to film it of course. Check out photos of the incident bellow!

Fearless Cats: Cats Standing Up Against Bears, Owls And Snakes

Though scaredy-cat is a truly appropriate term for real cats since we know cats are scared of basically everything - from random noises to unexpected cucumbers - when push comes to shove, cats are some of the most fearless, unbothered animals that exist. You shouldn't be offended, it's not just you poking them that they're aloof to, that trait of indifference applies to everyone

To prove that once and for all, we have compiled a list of some of our favorite cats standing up to other animals that you would probably not expect them to. An owl? Not a problem. A huge bear? Child's play. A king cobra? Pssh, not in this cat's household.

Although… with all this said, personally, we do not recommend counting on your cat to save you from a burglar.

Un-Bear-Ably Silly And Ridiculous Bear Memes (26 Memes)

Bears. Beets. Battle Star Galactica. 

Okay, maybe just bears. However, bears might be the most interesting subject out of all three things listed above. Sorry to offend, beet lovers of the world. 

Bears are dangerous animals, but they're also one of the cutest animals around. Yes, if you encounter one out in the wild it would be downright terrifying but what is about these animals that make us drawn to them? It could be that they're obviously fluffy, or how funny they look when they're standing. Or, maybe it's just instilled into our minds at a young age when you get your first stuffed teddy bear. 

Also, there's the obvious fact that they hibernate for about 7 months, which just sounds like a dream for anyone of us. Ah, sleep, we love it so much.

Bear with us here while we dive into the wildest bear memes we found scattered across the web.
