July 19, 2013 - A Truckee Police sergeant and community service officer assisted Dave Baker of the Truckee Bear League with recusing an injured 6 month old bear cub, which had been hit by a car a week and a half ago, and suffered a broken leg. Several Truckee residents have reported the cub in their neighborhood and yesterday the cub was found up in a tree. Dave Baker climbed the tree and was able to rescue the cub and lower it to the ground where it was placed in a crate.

The scared little critter was taken to Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, where it underwent sugery this morning for two broken bones.

This rescue was a success thanks to the great cooperation between the Truckee Bear League, the Truckee Police Department and several concerned Truckee citizens.

Please help us keep our wildlife safe and wild. The Truckee Bear League can be contacted at (530) 587-1374
