Firefighters Rescue A Bear Cub From A Wildfire, Name Him Smokey Junior.

Firefighters rescued an orphaned bear cub in the midst of a brush fire in Florida and named the little guy Smokey Junior.

Fire crews from Lake County in Central Florida, near Orlando, were fighting a brush fire which had ravaged more than 250 acres when they came upon “Smokey Junior” wondering all by himself.

The rescued cub weighed in at roughly 15 – 20 lbs and had slight burns on his paws and face from the fire. The mother has not been found but Florida Fish and Wildlife officers were scheduled to examine the cub’s health and were hoping to release him back into the wild.
