    The Lake Tahoe Wildlife Care Center has a brand new resident: this newborn bear cub.

    She’s just under 5 1/2 pounds, and the center has no idea where she came from.

    The 10-week-old cub was dropped off at the door of the nearby Bear League organization on Thursday, with no note attached.

    Her caretakers say she is doing well and has a healthy appetite.

    The bear cub is spending much of her time sleeping and learning to walk.
