BOISE -- The injured bear cub found alone near the Mustang Fire has been moved to a rehabilitation area in central Idaho.

An Idaho Fish and Game biologist picked up Boo Boo at the Humane Society shelter in Boise, where he has been recuperating from second-degree burns on all four paws, and took him to the Snowdon Wildlife Sanctuary in the mountains outside McCall.

The young bear continues to improve.

If he continues to mend, he could be released to wild as soon as this fall.
