“You could tell it was in real pain"
Officers were able to transport the injured bear to a local wildlife rehabilitation center to be treated. We can’t say exactly what happened, but it looks like the poor bear was trapped between burning patches of forest and had to move quickly to save itself.
A total area of over 3,000,000 acres has been burned so far. Officials fear the toll on native wildlife, habitats, and forests will be immense. As blazes rage throughout the west, more animals will unfortunately suffer the same consequences.
As the west coast battles the fires, more cases like this one are unfortunately inevitable. Our community is pitching in to help save habitats and restore lost forests. We can all make a difference and contribute to the restoration efforts. Saving and restoring acres upon acres of natural habitat, bringing new hope to American wildlife.
