A bear cub found last month in the Ocala National Forest has finally opened its eyes and is being cared for by the staff at the Brevard Zoo.
In February, a citizen contacted the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission after finding the weeks-old black bear cub alone on a dirt road. FWC searched the area for his mother, but she was not found.
The cub is now about 6-weeks-old and is healthy and feeding well. The Zoo shared photos of the adorable baby bear, snuggling with his caregiver and stuffed toys.
Because of the coronavirus, the Zoo says they stand to lose about one third of its annual income. Members of the community can support the Zoo by visiting www.brevardzoo.org.
