A young bear was discovered with a wounded shoulder Monday on the grounds of Heavenly Valley Ski Resort, according to officials of an animal rescue organization.

According to the Bear League Facebook page, the bear had a bloody shoulder and two small wounds but no bullet was found when a veterinarian examined him.

He was believed to be the same bear seen in a viral video in December running across a ski run at Heavenly.

The rescue organization said the bear only weighs 49 pounds and is likely a yearling.

He was transferred to the Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care facility for further treatment.

Please Note: From a handful of people in 1978 with an idea to help wildlife in their area, Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care has grown to an organization that now provides a service to more than nine counties in California and Nevada surrounding the Lake Tahoe region.
