Wild Bear Rescue Full Episode Guide

  • It's the first grizzly cub rescue of the season. Tanya and Peter head to the coast to search for an orphan grizzly that has been spotted wandering alone, but the cub proves elusive.

  • The last two yearling bears to be released seem to grow too attached to the volunteers. If Angelika can't teach them a healthy fear of humans, they could put the whole bear rehab program in jeopardy.
