Orphan Bear Cubs
This Tuesday, Feb. 25, 2014 photo shows one of three black bear cubs being cared for by Oregon Zoo staff, in Portland Ore. The Oregonian reports that a logging crew discovered the one male and two female cubs a week ago in a hollow log in western Yamhill County. The loggers from Cross and Crown were worried that their operation might have scared the mother bear away so they called Oregon Fish and Wildlife. A state biologist arranged for observation of the den. The mother bear visited briefly Wednesday morning, then disappeared. (AP Photo/The Oregonian, Benjamin Brink)
