Dr John Huckabee with Black Bear 111089 KM Dr John Huckabee with Black Bear 111089 KM (2) You may remember the story of the anemic Black Bear cub who came to PAWS in need of a blood transfusion. After the unusual procedure, the cub was given time to regain his strength and put on weight.

PAWS Wildlife Veterinarian Dr. John Huckabee recently performed a check-up on the cub, and reports, “He looks great!”  The cub came to PAWS weighing only 20 pounds, but now weighs almost 75 pounds. His blood count has also increased by over 20%, and the anemia is resolved.
