Black Bear / Vince Schute Wildlife Sanctuary 2015
This particular bear had apparently been caught in a snare. A thick, furless band goes around his whole ankle area, and his paw is very, very swollen and is painful to use. Since these are wild bears the sanctuary doesn't provide medical care (aside from the cost, which would be enormous). However, these cases are reported to Minnesota's DNR, and they are extremely aggressive at pursuing these kinds of things.
