Colorado Parks and Wildlife (CPW) rescued two tiny (and adorable) bear cubs near Coaldale in Fremont County.

Wildlife Officer Bob Carochi took the little guys to Wet Mountain Wildlife Rehabilitation Incorporated, where they will hang out until they’re ready to be released back into the wild.

CPW said it’s common to see young wildlife around the state around springtime. The organization said it receives calls frequently around this time of year from people concerned wildlife has been abandoned.

If you come across young wild animals that are alone, they advise just leaving the animals alone where they are unless 24 hours pass and the parent doesn’t return.
