Rescue Asking for Donations for Cub Saved in Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Park rangers rescue a bear cub that was found near a ranger station inside the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Officials with the Appalachian Bear Rescue says the cub was found yesterday (Wednesday) and say the cub was alone and walking in circles which is never a good sign.

The bear was taken to the UT College of Veterinary Medicine and the cub was named Puff Bear and she’s is a 4-month-old cub and weighs less than 7 lbs.

Vets say she has skull fractures, likely caused by a collision with a car and some other injuries.

If you’d like to help with Puff Bear’s care, donations can be made to Appalachian Bear Rescue at https://appalachianbearrescue.org/
