In the spring of 1950, crews of forest rangers fought to contain a massive wildfire in the Capitan Mountains. A lone bear cub took refuge in a tree, narrowly escaping with his life, but with badly burned paws and hind legs. Rangers treated the cub's injuries and news spread nationwide of the little bear that survived. People wrote and called in to see about his recovery, prompting the chief of the Forest Service to designate him as the symbol of conservation and wildfire prevention. The little cub made a full recovery and became Smokey Bear.
