County ups grant for group rehabbing bear orphans

ASPEN, Colo. (AP) - A Western Slope wildlife foundation that rehabilitates injured or orphaned animals is getting a larger grant than expected.

The Aspen Daily News reports ( that after the foundation contested the recommendation, county commissioners agreed Tuesday to award the foundation a $3,000 grant from the county's Healthy Community Fund.
