Ketchikan, Alaska - This little black bear cub is another of Ketchikan's orphaned cubs that will be euthanized when eventually found & captured by Alaska Fish & Game.

If you'd like for these creatures to have life as an option, it may be time for the people of Alaska to provide a sanctuary for these orphaned cubs, like many other states and our B.C. neighbors do. Providing a sanctuary will require money, trained staff and likely volunteers.
