Cinder the bear slowly healing from wildfire burns

The Associated Press

WENATCHEE — A black-bear cub burned in a devastating wildfire is making a slow recovery at a California wildlife center.

The Wenatchee World reports the cub, named Cinder, has third-degree burns on her paws that require new bandages every other day, and she’s still on pain medications and antibiotics. But Denise Upton, a caretaker at Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, says she’s got a good appetite and has been enjoying fresh fruit and trout brought in by local fishermen.

The 37-pound bear was discovered under a horse trailer in the Methow Valley, where a fire burned about 400 square miles and destroyed 300 homes. A state Department of Fish and Wildlife officer captured her, and a volunteer pilot flew Cinder to California.

Upton said it’s too soon to know if Cinder can be returned to the wild.
