Wildlife officials are getting ready to release a young Formosan black bear they rescued last year back into the wild. They have nursed the bear back to health and are training it to survive on its own in the wild—with adorable results!
It can be a tough world out there for Formosan black bears. One was found dead in Hualien County on Wednesday, apparently from the bite of another animal.
For young bear Mulas, though, life is still all fun and games. Wildlife officials found Mulas separated from its mother in July last year.
