On April 25, two DGIF biologists responded to a bear cub call in Amherst County, Virginia. Two small cubs had been seen in a tree for more than 24 hours; the tree was beside a road with a sharp curve, and multiple people had stopped to look at the cubs. There was no sign of their mother in the area; a Conservation Police Officer recommended rescuing the cubs for both human and bear safety. One of the DGIF biologists was able to climb the tree to safely retrieve the two cubs.

On April 24, a private citizen found an eagle down on the ground near her house in Widewater, Virginia. The eagle was bleeding and was unable to fly away. Two other immature eagles were on the ground near the eagle; it appeared as though they may have been fighting with the injured eagle. The citizen was able to contain the eagle and transported it to the Wildlife Center of Virginia.

The Great Horned Owl family is doing well in Flight Pen 4; on Saturday, the oldest Great Horned Owlet [#18-0299] was let out of its crate. On Monday, April 23, the other two owlets came out of their crate. All three are exploring, making short flights, and are eating well. The owlets are wearing temporary colored leg bands to identify them while they are housed together; the bands will be removed this fall and replaced with permanent metal U.S. Fish & Wildlife bands prior to their release.
