Several techniques can be used to return captured orphaned bear cubs to the wild. They can be released immediately in suitable habitat, be adopted by another female with young, or be fattened and then released. The last technique was used successfully to return to the wild an orphaned cub obtained by the Border Grizzly Project of the University of Montana in 1975. The cub was fattened in captivity and released into an artificial den after being fitted with a radiocollar. She denned successfully nearby and survived the winter and early spring with no known problems.
