Boo Boo On The Mend

This undated photo provided by the Idaho Department of Fish and Game shows a cub black bear burned in the Mustang Fire north of Salmon, Idaho. Idaho Fish and Game wildlife veterinarian Mark Drew says a number of facilities offered to care for the 4-month-old cub nicknamed "Boo Boo." He says the Idaho Humane Society was selected Friday because of the cub's medical and other needs. Drew says the cub weighs just 23 pounds but his appetite is good and the wounds have stabilized, seem to be improving and do not appear to have any infection. The cub was discovered Aug. 26 clinging to a tree in the eastern Idaho backcountry recently scorched by a massive wildfire near Salmon. Efforts to find the bear's mother were unsuccessful.
