DEL NORTE, Colo. (CBS4) – A bear cub who was rescued in June from the East Canyon Fire near Mancos is on the mend. He has been enjoying his time at the Frisco Creek Rehab Facility in Del Norte. That has included lots of time in a large hammock.
Wildlife specialists treated the cub for burns on his paws. They say he could be released soon.
Enjoying the hammock life.
