TOWNSEND, Tenn. — Our friends over at Appalachian Bear Rescue got a new family member!
This is the rescue's newest cub, 'Furman Bear.' He's named in honor of Furman University in Greenville, South Carolina.
The rescue said he came from South Carolina, is only about six weeks old and weighs just a little over a pound.
Rescuers said he went in for a check up and appears to be health.
He's living in a separate pen in The Cub Nursery and chugging bear milk replacement formula from a bottle for now, according to ABR.
