The Virginia Wildlife Center just got another baby bear bringing their total to 12.

The female cub was found in Botetourt County with a fractured femur.

Doctors at the wildlife center think the injury may have meant he couldn't keep up with her mother.

The cub was extremely thin and dehydrated.

Once more tests are run, the bear will be introduced to three other rescued females.
