Rescued bear cubs released back into Great Smoky Mountains National Park

There are a few more black bears in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Tennessee after the National Parks Service recently rescued 15 cubs.

The cubs were found abandoned and near death this winter. In the video posted below, you can take a look at the cubs as they go back into the wild. One cub scrambled out of the truck it was released from and straight up a tree for safety.

Appalachian Bear Rescue made sure the cups had food and medical care. The group says human contact was kept to a minimum so the cubs could learn to forage and find food.
