ST. LOUIS (KPLR) – Boo-Boo, the bear cub was nearly euthanized because of a rabies scare, is getting a new home at the St. Louis Zoo.

The cub nipped more than a dozen Washington University students last week when he appeared as part of a petting zoo on campus. The zoo has a tradition at the university, a sort of stress reliever for students during finals week.

Boo-Boo wasn’t euthanized after authorities determined he didn’t have rabies.

No word yet when the bear cub will be seen by the public.

He’ll be in quarantine for thirty days.
