Hiker saves dying bear cub


Thankfully this man was not sent to jail or had to pay a fine.  the ODFW gave Hancock a warning instead of a criminal citation because Hancock had acted with the intention of saving the bear's life.  As for little Cub, he is now at the PAWS Wildlife Center in Lynwood, Washington where he will be able to grow up in a natural environment without human interference. Best of all, Elkhorn won't be alone! A rescued female cub is keeping him company at PAWS. Let's hope that someday there will be a reunion between Mr. Hancock and little Elkhorn!
