About:

Yak was one of a pair of siblings that were orphaned near Soldotna, Alaska in 1991. It’s unclear what happened to their mother, but the cubs were captured and transferred to
our facility because they were far too young to survive on their own. Unfortunately,
many large carnivores like bears are unsuitable for rehabilitation because the risk of releasing a habituated bear is too high. If these carnivores don’t retain their natural fear of humans, they pose a risk to us and to themselves.
