Fisher, one of the bear cub rescued one month ago near Cranbrook, is starting to feel better after suddenly falling ill early last week. Angelika Langen, the manager of the Northern Lights Wildlife Society shelter in Smithers, was happy to report Friday that the little bear cub is improving daily. He was diagnosed with Liver Sarcosis and will requires long-term medication over the next four to five weeks.
