Logan, a four month old male sun bear cub, arrived at BSBCC on 19th of May 2018. He was the first bear rescued in 2018, the 57th overall for BSBCC. Logan was found at Lokan River, Kulu-Kulu Village, Sandakan, Sabah. The owner reported that he had seen a mother bear and a bear cub in an estate. One day, the mother bear was crossed a river leaving the cub behind. The owner realized that the front left paw of the bear cub was injured. The injured paw was covered in maggots and hairless. The owner then took the bear cub and kept him. The bear cub was young, tiny and skinny. He was held in a small metal cage around three months and fed with milk and porridge mixed with chicken. The owner surrendered him to the Sabah Wildlife Department (SWD) and sent to BSBCC on the same day. Upon arrival he was named Logan.
