SİNOP - Anatolia News Agency
Fatma Karahan is taking care the bear cub with his son at home. AA photoA bear cub that was saved from dying of cold in a cemetery by locals in the Black Sea province of Sinop is being cared for at home by Forestry and Water Affairs Regional Director Fatma Karahan.
Karahan said her son was helping her take care of the bear cub. “There is no problem in feeding and taking care of him thanks to my son, but treatment is still continuing for the wounds on his feet caused by the cold,” she said.
“Bears generally give birth in January, so we estimate that the baby is almost two months old. It is not possible that his mother took him away from the nest. Most probably he was taken by a bird and fell in the area where he was found. We also estimate that he stayed there in the cold for about two days,” Karahan added.
The bear cub will remain in care until his wounds recover, after which he will be transferred to the rehabilitation center in Bursa.
