Bear Cub Accidentally Trapped

hurt bear cub

A bear cub accidentally caught in a wolf trap near Tetonia, Idaho may consider itself lucky that the incident took place.  The foothold trap had been placed on Friday, January 3rd and checked after 48 hours, 24 hours in advance of the 72-hour required trap checking period.  The cub that should have been hibernating with its mother was still wandering around at the start of January:  a time when its chances of surviving the winter were basically zero.  Idaho Fish and Game Spokesman Gregg Losinski says getting caught in the trap was probably the best thing that could have happened to the cub. Losinski says the cub was transported by volunteers to the Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary near McCall, Idaho where rehabilitation experts will determine the best course of action for the bear’s future.
