Bear cub has a new temporary home

The cub was separated from his mother after he was hit by a car at 200 Street and 96 Avenue.

This bear cub became separated from his mother when hit by a car at 96 Avenue and 200 Street in late September, and was eventually tranquilized and taken to Critter Care Wildlife Society in South Langley. The 60-pound, six-month-old bruin has been named Aries. It’s hoped he can be returned to the wild in the spring.

A black bear cub who climbed up a tree at 200 Street and 96 Avenue after being hit by a car is making himself at home at Critter Care in Langley.

According to his care provider, who has named him Aries, the 60-pound, six-month-old bruin is doing “quite well.”

He was hit by a car while walking with his mom on Sept. 25. He got scared, ran through a razor wire fence and climbed the tree.

A conservation officer tranquilized him and several people working in the area helped catch him with a blanket when he fell. Critter Care rehabilitation centre in Campbell Valley Park takes in injured and orphaned animals native to B.C., with the goal to rehabilitate them back to the wild.

The cub may be ready to return to the wild in the spring. Critter Care held its annual  Walk-A-Thon on Sunday.
