After a week, on December 23, volunteers for the California Department of Fish and Wildlife drove the cub to a licensed bear facility called "The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center" in San Diego County.
In a Facebook post, the Bear League said that the cub's condition was probably due to the fact that she lost her mother early in the season and tried to make it on her own.
Nicknamed 'Eve' in honour of the holiday season, the bear cub now has to put on weight and regain her fur. Fortunately, she is responding well to treatment.
In an update posted on January 1, the The Fund for Animals Wildlife Center said that the 'little bare-bear' is doing great and is a hearty eater.
