Here are the details:

Our road workers are always ready to lend a helping hand, regardless of who needs the help. This afternoon John, one of our Blewett Pass maintenance workers, was on the south side of the pass when he noticed a mama bear and her cub separated by US 97. John pulled onto the shoulder and activated his truck-mounted message board to warn traffic to slow down for wildlife near the road.

Thankfully, the mom and cub were reunited and continued up into the mountains, hopefully well away from the road. Remember to keep a close eye out as there's a lot of migrating wildlife out there right now! And great job by John, thanks for stepping up to help a mom and kid in need!

We are glad to see a mama bear and her cub reunited, shout out to the Washington State Department Of Transportation employee for saving the day.
