LYNNWOOD, Wa—Two bear cubs survived a dramatic capture after they were found in a tree in Darrington, Washington.

One of the cubs, a female, suffered a collapsed lung when  it was hit with a tranquilizer dart.

Both were transported to PAWS Wildlife Center.  An exam revealed a puncture wound in the cub’s chest.

A veterinary team closed the wound and re-inflated the cubs lung.

The cub’s condition remains guarded and PAWS is optimistic it will make a full recovery and be ready for release next year.
