A black bear cub that was hit by a car on Route 521 in Hardwick is recovering at Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary. The 50-pound cub was found curled up on the side of the road and covered in a bit of snow on Friday, December 7.
Luckily a passerby saw the bear and called around to the police and organizations to see if anything could be done to help the animal. The director of Antler Ridge Wildlife Sanctuary put together a crew of volunteers who got the bear and transported it to Animal Clinic of Morris Plains to be evaluated.
The cub is now back in the care of the sanctuary and they plan to release it back into the wild early next week.
