The 10 Black Bear cubs in the Wildlife Center’s Bear Complex are doing well – while the cubs may have slowed down during the extreme cold snap early in January, they are still up and active every day, which is not uncommon for bears of this age in Virginia. The bears have access to two half-acre yards and can often be found hanging out in trees or cuddling together in and around the dens.

Bobcat #17-2688 continues to quietly recover in the Center’s Bear Pens; the bobcat is still eating her “rat slurry” every day; otherwise, the staff attempt to leave the bobcat alone to reduce stress. Additional radiographs to check on the bobcat’s injured jaw are scheduled for January 22.

The vet staff have been carefully caring for Golden Eagle #18-0001 each day. The bird’s deep wound appears to be starting to heal, with granulation tissue forming and there is no sign of infection. A re-check lead test on January 7 revealed “low” results, indicating that the chelation therapy worked and removed the lead from the eagle’s blood. Because lead can be stored in the bones and released later, the eagle will receive another lead analysis in a week.
The eagle is not yet eating on his own, so the vet staff hand-feed the bird daily. The eagle remains bright and alert.
