Tamarack, an аbаndоnеd bear cub, was sаvеd from a wildfire in Northern California last year. His paws had been burned in the fire, writes beopeo.com
He was getting care for his injuriеs at a place for animals when, to the surprise of his rеscuеrs, he got away and went back into the wild.
Even though Tamarack has been through a lot in the past, he is still alive and well, as shown by an adorable video.
Since Tamarack’s escape last summer, wildlife enthusiast Toogee Sielsch has chronicled his movements on trail cameras placed throughout the forest near his home. From that vantage point, it’s clear the orphaned bear cub has exceeded the odds.
But Tamarack is more than simply surviving — he’s thriving.
Recently, one of Sielsch’s cameras captured footage of Tamarack dropping by a large puddle to take a bath. However, he was not alone. In Tamarack’s company was a toy bear figurine he’d evidently found and befriended.
