It looks like 13 bear cubs have a new friend. They’ve added a 14th bear at the Virginia Wildlife Center.

This baby bear was attached by dogs in Tazwell County.

Luckily there were no injuries, but doctors are still running tests.

As we said, this is now the 14th bear cub being cared for at the wildlife center.

On top of that, the center also has two other black bear yearlings.

With a cub rescued earlier this year that means they've already tied last year's record.

Before the new edition, the 12 of the cubs were split into two groups of six.

Another cub was still being kept alone.

They've both been moved into flight pens used for birds because the center needed a place  to put their yearlings.

Now they've run out of space, but you can take action to help.

The Wildlife Center is a two-acre facility they're hoping to build for the cubs.

They need about $120, 000 to reach their goal.
