Bear Visits Antiochian Village Camp

March 23, 2010  []

An unexpected visitor surprised the Antiochian Village Camp and Conference Center of the Antiochian Orthodox Archdiocese.

On March 3, 2010, at the edge of the Antiochian Village property, a small black bear was sighted in a tree. A Game Comissioner was called in. He sedated the bear and gave it a mask to protect its eyes and mouth while being moved.

The Game Comissioner confirmed that this is out of the ordinary. After examination, it is clear that this young bear is ill and thin. He came out of hibernation early, and finding no food, he tried to locate some in the neighbor’s garbage.

The Game Commission assured Mother Alexandra that sleeping beauty will be medicated, fed, and released somewhere good for bears.
