The six-month-old cub was badly burned. “She was lying down, making pitiful whimpering noises,” homeowner Steve Love told KOMO News. “I got about six feet away, sat down and talked to it in a soothing way, telling it things would be OK. It seemed to make it feel better. It stopped making noises.” . . .

Yes. Extensivw burns are bad news, especially on the very young, because their small bodies have a much larger surface-to-volume ratio, meaning more of their skin gets badly burned, percentage-wise. It sounds like she's getting the best of care. I hope she makes it, and hasn't been too traumatized by the burns, psychologically speaking.
