Artist's Description

Back in May this yearling was seen around the Chimneys picnic area. For what ever reason it was undersize by about 50%. It was also without a mother for what ever reason. The Park Service tried to capture it for several days. It was determined to be to small to tranquilize, so traping was about the only option. I was there when it finally went into the trap and was captured, and helped load it into the truck. The ranger was going to try and get it into Appalachian Bear Rescue in Townsend for health tests and to fatten it up some. I don’t know the outcome, but this is a good example of behind the scenes work the Park service does. They presisted for several days untill they captured it so it could receve some need help. For those wanting to donate to a worthy cause here is the adress for Appalachian Bear Rescue
