The little black bear that survived the passage of the huge Mustang Forest Fire on the Salmon River this summer has been steadily recovering.

According to a story in the Ravalli Republic, Boo Boo may be released in June. The bear has been kept in a 2-acre enclosurer with five other orphaned cubs, the article says, at Snowdon Wildlife Santuary near McCall, Idaho.

Snowdon official Diane Evans-Mack said that the bear will probably be released after Idaho’s bear hunting season ends. She said the cub is playing with the other cubs and climbing trees. The burns are still healing, though.

As KLYQ reported during the fire season, the bear was found in a tree along the Salmon River by US Forest Service firefighters. The cub’s mother was not in the area and the bear had serious burns on its paws. The discussion over the next few days was where the cub should be sent. It was decided Snowdon was the best place for the bear to recover.
