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!

Rehabilitating A Baby Bobcat Is An Adventure (Imgur Posts)

We all know that taking care of baby animals is a lot of work; helping them get used to their environment and the people around them. But taking care of baby wild animals is even more challenging, and imgur user hereyougobacon71, who's helped rehabilitate animals previously, shows us exactly why that is. 

Working to rehabilitate a baby bobcat turned out to be quite a challenge - with the kitty showing off its fierceness with biting and playing and... climbing and claiming the washing machine and... climbing into hereyougobacon71's pants. Yeah, it's not what hereyougobacon71 expected either, which only makes it more entertaining. 

The cub will, of course, be released into the wild after its rehabilitation, but for now, we are really enjoying watching it grow up to be the fiercest of all kittens. 

Was found in a pile of brush. No mother, no tracks, nothing... Each day she gets a little and little more brave. Just watch your toes. Only 6 weeks old. - hereyougobacon71

Giant Panda Cub Gets Named And Its A True 'Little Miracle'

We've an update about one of the most positive stories to come out of 2020, and the update is just as wholesome as the original story. The (tiny) giant panda cub that was born at the Smithsonian's National Zoo three weeks ago has finally gotten a name, and it is the most appropriate and cutest name of all. Xiao Qi Ji is his name in Chinese, but it translates to 'little miracle' in English. 

The little giant panda has gone absolutely viral in the past couple of weeks after a video of his miraculous birth was released by the zoo, and since the world fell in love with the cub, the zoo decided to let the world participate in naming him. Of course, the internet does not disappoint when it comes to baby animals. 

We were given a choice of 4 names, and after three weeks and nearly 135,000 votes that have been cast, the adorable name 'little miracle' was chosen. The long waiting period was not an accident, it is part of Chinese tradition to wait 100 days before naming the cub. We wish the little cub luck and prosperity, and for his mother, Mei Xiang, to have many more adorable healthy cubs in the future!

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.

A starving cougar cub, weighing just 34 pounds, which is 50 pounds underweight for a cat its size, happened to wander to the right place at the exact right time. The cub managed to find it's way to Central Valley Animal Rescue in Quilcene, Washington, and is currently at a rehabilitation center in Texas. 

Sara Penhallegon, an animal rescuer at Central Valley Animal Rescue, told King 5 that she suspected the cougar had come to lay in an old pile of hay to die. The cub was barely a year old. Thankfully, the cub wandered to the animal rescue where Penhallegon and her team were able to properly care for this cub. They suspect that the cougar's mother recently passed before she was able to teach her cub how to hunt and how to fend for itself. 

Cub tend to stay with their mothers for 18 to 36 months. Without the cub's mother, there was a 10% chance the cub would survive. 

"This was a cat that had not learned to hunt yet. It had no way to take care of itself or feed itself," Penhallegon tells King 5. "When its mom died, that would've been a death sentence for this cat unless it found itself a rehabilitation center it could check itself into!"

Penhallegon and her team nursed the cub back to health and the cub was able to put on 10 pounds. After treating the cub for 2 weeks, the young cougar destroyed the hard plastic siding of her pen, her keepers knew it was time for her to be transferred. Because the cougar had no idea how to fend for itself, it couldn't be released back to the forests of the Olympic Peninsula, and it is also illegal to rehabilitate and return a cougar into the wild in the state of Washington. 

They decided the young cub would head to a natural habitat zoo in Texas. Penhallegon said she wishes for the young cougar to walk free once again, but as of right now,  she's simply happy it wandered into her life and she was able to save its life. 

"Obviously, our goal is to return animals to the wild, but the next best option is a really good captive placement with a great facility that can take care of its needs. And that's what we have for this one," added Penhallegon.

In every cub's life, there's an incredible moment - the moment they meet their dad for the first time. It's totally normal for them to be separate at first, and that makes for some of the cutest first time dad meeting ever. This meeting goes as good as it could, and it's totally adorable. 

The dad roars at them a couple times, and they jump back - the big lion is intimidating, that's true, but he's also a perfect gentleman. He just has to show them how to be a proper fierce lion. And the little cubs are happy, excited, and playful. And adorable. Don't forget adorable. The big bad terrifying lion dad is also kind of really adorable, not gonna lie. 

Now, the mom is not going to have to protect her babies alone, and the pride is going to be stronger than ever. Of course, the little hooligans will keep up their shenanigans, but dad's gonna make sure that they know exactly how to be the fiercest, scariest (and cutest) lions around.

Rescue Fox Cub And Bulldog Are Inseparable Best Friends

Unlikely animal friendships are always heartwarming to see, but this one is extra special. 

Last April, 28-year-old Pauline Ashanolla from the Isle of Wight came across a 6-month-old fox cub. The fox was "alone, frightened and very poorly" when she found it. It was either abandoned or Orphaned, and Paulina, with a heart of gold, decided to rescue the fox, and took it into her care. Since then, she has put her everything into taking care of this fox, who she named Marley. She fed it kitten milk day and night every 90 minutes, going as far as to give up her dream of being a dog groomer to take care of the cub and watch it grow and prosper. 

In an almost magical turn of events, the 4-year-old bulldog - Ernie - that Paulina has became best friends with the little fox, and the two of them are now best of friends. "They do everything together, they're inseparable," told Paulina to DailyMail. "They play with each other all day, they sleep together every night, they go for walks together."

They truly are a real life recreation of Disney's Fox and the Hound, and it is so pure and beautiful. Check out pictures of these best friends hanging out and pictures of Marley as a baby fox bellow!
