Injured Bear Cub Rescued – Franklin County
A motorist called DEC on July 28 to report that he had struck a bear cub on Rt. 3 in the town of Franklin. ECO James Cranker responded and located the injured bear cub in a tree alongside the busy highway. The cub seemed dazed and was favoring an injured front leg. ECO Cranker followed the bear a short distance into the woods, while being alert for the presence of an adult bear in the vicinity. DEC Wildlife Biologist Jim Sickles and a crew of wildlife technicians arrived and successfully delivered a tranquilizer to immobilize the bear. A cursory examination of the cub showed abrasions and a broken front leg, but the injuries appeared non-life threatening. The bear was transported to Cornell University in Ithaca for treatment and rehabilitation and will be released when it is determined to be at full strength.
