Tamarack, an orphaned bear cub, was sаvеd from a wildfire area in Northern California last year after having his paws scorched.
To the amazement of his rеscuеrs, he was being treated for his wounds at a wildlife care center when he made it back into the wild.
Fortunately, Tamarack is still alive and well despite the trаumа of his past, and there is now a cute video to show it.
Wildlife enthusiast Toogee Sielsch has recorded Tamarack’s activities on trail cameras positioned across the woodland close to his home ever since Tamarack’s escape last summer. It is obvious the orphaned bear cub has beaten the odds from that vantage point.
But Tamarack isn’t just getting by; he’s prospering.
Recent footage from one of Sielsch’s cameras shows Tamarack stopping by a sizable puddle to take a bath. But he wasn’t by himself. Tamarack was accompanied by a toy bear figure that he had apparently found and made friends with.
