An orphaned baby bear has a new home with some humans in the Pacific Northwest.

The cub was found by some loggers on the side of a road in Oregon.

The mother bear was nowhere in the area.

The cub was taken to a wildlife center in Washington state, where staff members say she is healthy and has gained weight since arriving.

They plan to release the bear into the wild next spring.
