Three orphaned black bear cubs rescued in Oregon

State wildlife officials recently delivered these three orphaned black bear cubs to the Oregon Zoo, where they will be nursed back to health in the medical centre.

It has been a busy month for the zoo, as three orphaned cougars are also currently under their care.

The cubs in the video are approximately one month old, and at under three pounds, just starting to grow teeth. It is thought that their mother was scared off by logging operations in the area where the cubs were found.

Officials at the zoo have stated that the cubs will be monitored closely until they are able to travel to an undisclosed Texas location and released.
