They each weighed less than a kilogram.

Their ears and eyes hadn’t even opened yet.

The four new bear cubs to arrive at the Orphaned Bear Rehab Center in Bubonitsy, Russia were probably just two weeks old.

They were brought in by the Nelidovo District’s chief veterinarian. The people who delivered them to his office said they were walking in the forest and unintentionally frightened a female bear from her den, which housed the four cubs.

The initial examination didn’t show any wounds or abnormalities. The bear cubs started to drink milk from the bottle very soon, consuming 35 ml milk each every 3-4 hours.

They are now kept in the warm room in a special wooden box with a heating electric pad on the floor, imitating their mother’s warm belly.
