Motherless bear cub getting ready to go back into the wild

Posted: Updated:
CALIFORNIA - A 13-week-old bear cub is thriving after a California man discovered her on a hike.

The cub's mother was found dead so the hiker brought her to a wildlife care center.

Every four hours Tahoe is taken from her kennel, fed from a bottle, and allowed to run herself out.  The staff says while they would love to give her a bear hug that would be the worst thing for her.

Tahoe is expected to grow to about 80 pounds and be released back into her natural habitat next year.
