Rescued Mama Bear Welcomes Spring With Her Newborn Cubs

Ursula, a pregnant bear that was rescued last winter from the Black Forest Bear Park in Helen, Georgia, just came out of hibernation with her two newborn cubs.

Ursula was pregnant when People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) and “Simpsons” co-creator Sam Simon followed a tip from the Atlanta Humane Society and investigated the Black Forest Bear Park. The conditions they found were appalling. The bears were held in filthy, virtually barren concrete pits and the females were being repeatedly impregnated for breeding purposes. The rescue team managed to remove Ursula and sixteen other bears from the decrepit park and move them to The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado.

As soon as Ursula arrived at her new home she immediately found a cozy den and started preparing for the birth of her cubs. Her newborns arrived in the world in late January, and probably for the first time ever, Ursula was able to nurture and raise her cubs as nature intended. At the Black Forest Bear Park her previous newborns were almost immediately torn away from her, leaving their mother distraught and heartbroken.

It is a wonderful sight to see mama bear and her two babies wake up out of their winter slumber and investigate their new surroundings. Never again will the paws of Ursula, or her cubs touch the floor of a concrete pit.

Watch this heartwarming video, and welcome in the season of new beginnings with Ursula and her cubs.
