Black Bear #16-1817 update

On September 21, Dr. Peach darted and anesthetized Black Bear #16-1817 for an examination. The veterinary team took a skin scraping to check for additional mange mites and also took several skin biopsies. Licensed veterinary technician Leigh-Ann was happy to report that no mites were found on the skin scraping, which meant the bear was cleared to move to the Black Bear Complex. Dr. Peach was pleased to see the bear’s hair growing back nicely.
