Rehabilitating a cub

Earlier today we visited a bear cub. This little cub turned up in Jengkana school in Haa, a day after the recent flash floods. She was probably separated from her mother during the floods. Forestry officials quickly took the cub to the Wildlife Management and Rehabilitation Centre in Taba. She’ll stay there – with another resident, an orphaned leopard kitten – there till she’s old enough to be reintroduced in the pine forests of Haa.

  1. I am actually devastated by the fact that Gasa-Tshachhu has been washed away by the flood. Is it true that it cannot be rehabilitated?

    • Good news: the tshachu have reemerged. And they are hotter than before. My colleague, Dasho Damcho, says that a temporary pond has already been built and that it is being used. He also says that the hotsprings will be rehabilitated.

  1. […] No one knows the whereabouts of the mother bear. So the cub will stay in the Wildlife Management and Rehabilitation Centre in Taba till she’s old enough to be reintroduced in the forest. Remember that the rehabilitation centre already has a resident bear cub, also from Haa. And that I visited that orphan last Sunday. […]

  2. […] The last picture of the bear is from the Opposition leader’s blog… to know more about the cubs, click here […]
