In 1950, the living incarnation of Smokey was found when a bear cub was rescued as he clung to a charred, smoking tree trunk after a forest fire in New Mexico. Upon healing, the appropriately named cub was sent to live in the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. This real Smokey Bear continued to live and be the universal symbol of fire prevention until 1976, when he was laid to rest in Capitan, New Mexico.
