A video posted by the Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro shows an injured black bear cub being given a dose of pain medication. Judging by the bear’s reaction, the medicine doesn’t taste very good!

According to the Wildlife Center, the bear cub was found on April 13th by a homeowner in Greene County.

Upon admission to the center, Dr. Dana Tedesco, the center’s veterinary intern, found a digit on the bear’s right front paw was dislocated.
