Baby bear burned in 416 Fire released into the wild

CPW healed, fattened cub; Now it’s up to Mother Nature
Matt Thorpe, with Colorado Parks and Wildlife, looks over the structure that holds the bear cubs after it was completed on Friday in the mountains west of Durango. They constructed a “den” site and placed a steel box – which held one other bear – in a remote location and covered it with hay, evergreen branches and snow. The bears will probably emerge in mid-April.
