Snowflake came to Appalachian Bear Rescue thanks to a good Samaritan who found her on the side of the road.

Hazel and Celia, on the other hand, were spotted hanging out in people's yards and were reported to animal control.

They ended up at ABR because, unfortunately, they were found to be not in in the best shape -- all three cubs were very malnourished.

While Hazel was otherwise pretty healthy, both Cecilia and Snowflake needed heavy medical attention.

The good news is that the bears were able to receive help and all three of them did great during their rehab.

In only a few months they were all ready to head back home.

Each cub was given ear tags and GPS tracking collars so that their vets can keep up with how they're doing.

Here's some advice from Appalachian Bear Rescue: Seeing a cub alone doesn't always mean it's in trouble. Sometimes mother bears go off and hunt and interfering can accidentally orphan the cub.

When it doubt, always call your local wildlife agency.
