MILLVILLE – One of Cache Valley’s newest residents has moved into his temporary Millville home.

A young, orphaned bear cub, about seven months old, was moved into the Millville Predator Research Facility earlier this month, according to the Utah Division of Wildlife Resources (DWR). The cub is one of six at the facility. All are expected to stay there until late this fall, when they will be released. Until then, a <a href=”http://qcnr.usu.edu/bear_cam” target=”_blank”>live webcam</a> has been set up so everyone can watch the bears themselves.

According to a video posted by the DWR to its Facebook page, the newest bear cub was sedated so a checkup could be performed. He received fluids, had his blood drawn and had his temperature monitored before entering the facility.
