MDWFP Black Bear Program

Foundation Board Chairman & Orphaned Bear Cub

The Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) Black Bear Program recently rescued and rehomed an abandoned black bear cub from the South Delta to a new den in Wilkinson County and our board chairman was on the scene.
