Time to tug on the old heartstrings...

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

Time to tug on the old heartstrings...

Copy and paste from another website wildlandfire.com

"A couple of days ago, Adam Deem, a forester with Calfire, was scouting the Moon Fire's NW flank near Buckhorn Summit (West of Redding) when he came across a little 6-month old cub that was dehydrated, had 3rd degree burns to its paws, an injured eye and no mom. He took it to medical in fire camp, after which it was evaluated and treated by veterinarians at the Dept of Fish and Game's Rancho Cordova facility near Sacramento. The cub's seriously burned paw pads will require more treatments and 5-7 days to heal. The cub is now at the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care, a wildlife care center and is a good candidate for release next January or February. Photo compliments of Adam Deem (0708). [Right now the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care website is overwhelmed with viewers. Later you can follow Lil Smokey's progress: http://www.ltwc.org.]"
