Orphaned bear cub rescued on Nolichucky River


An orphaned bear cub was rescued along the Nolichucky River this week.

Guides with USA Raft Company in Erwin said they saw the cub swimming out to rafts in the river for several days before she finally climbed into one.

She was brought to USA Raft where the owner called the Appalachian Bear Rescue.

Veterinarians said the cub was severely dehydrated and lethargic but is recovering.

They said she’s about five months old and they’ve named her Noli Bear.
