Black Bear cub #16-2023 update

Black Bear cub #16-2023 has been doing well in the week following her surgery. The bear has been restricted to a zinger crate since her surgery, but is standing on all four limbs, and can walk when she is shifted between zinger crates for daily cleaning. The bear is eating well.

On September 15, the bear will be moved to the small connecting chute in the Large Mammal Isolation enclosure. This area will allow the bear to have a little more room, but will still limit her activity during the next five weeks as she heals from her leg fractures.
