LAKE TAHOE, Calif. (WJW)– Wildlife officers are trying to find a 6-month-old black bear cub that was recovering from burns suffered within the California wildfires.
The bear, now named Tamarack, arrived on the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Heart on July 26 after a house owner discovered him of their yard. The cub was 21 kilos and had burns on all 4 paws.
The wildlife heart stated he was consuming properly and gaining weight whereas workers hoped to carry out pores and skin grafts.
Then on Tuesday, Tamarack escaped his enclosure by tunneling beneath an electrical fence.
“He isn’t in rapid hazard and isn’t a risk, however we have to find him as quickly as potential. We’re asking anybody within the South Shore Lake Tahoe Space—particularly the areas of Black Bart, Heavenly Valley and Sierra Tract— to be looking out. It can be crucial that non-residents keep out of the world as he’s petrified of people and phone will solely make him cover or run,” Lake Tahoe Wildlife Heart stated.
He’s seemingly hiding or in a tree. A tip line, at 530-577-2273, was arrange in an effort to find him.
