Two black bear cubs are being cared for at the Wildlife Center of Virginia in Waynesboro Monday evening after they were rescued by a state police officer.

Senior Trooper DH Cepelnik saved the orphaned cubs last week after their mother was struck and killed by a vehicle in Franklin County.

The cubs save has gone viral.
