Bear Rehabilitation Camera

Typically bears are born in a den over winter and can be self-sufficient by August but stay with their mother for 1-2 years. When cubs are orphaned during or right after the first den emergence then UDWR contracts with USDA and Utah State University to care for the bears until they are old enough for release back into the wild by UDWR. Sometime in the fall they will be released in order to explore and find a den for the winter. The predator research facility has been successfully rehabilitating and releasing bears back into the wild for several years. In the past, rehabilitating as many as seven bear cubs at a time, this year with twin bear cubs.
