Langley-based rehabilitation facility shares behind-the-scenes action

Langley’s Critter Care Wildlife Society is releasing bear cubs back into the wild and they’re giving the community a behind-the-scenes look.

In a video posted to social media June 23, the rehabilitation facility shows the preparation crew members undertake before the release of the animals.

The bears shown in the footage are under sedation and are released with temporary collar monitors, which the society says will rot off.

The bears highlighted in the video are Luna, Aurora, Paddington, Tony and Elena.
