BOISE -- The now famous black bear, whose paws were burned in the Mustang Fire last month, is now at Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary outside McCall.

Pictures from the Sanctuary show him climbing a tree and investigating his new home.

"Boo Boo" was found by fire fighters with severe burns on all four paws.

He has spent the past few weeks getting treatment for his feet thanks to the Department of Fish and Game and Idaho Humane Society.

He is now living in a two-acre forested bear enclosure. The Snowdon website says he is being rehabbed with other orphaned bears until he is ready to be released back to the wild.
