Black Bears #16-2564 and #17-0009

Black Bears #16-2564 and #17-0009 — the two most recent bears admitted — are both doing well in the Center’s Bear Pen, where they are housed together. The staff initially had some challenges getting the new “sisters” to eat during the recent cold snap in Waynesboro; both bears were exhibiting normal winter denning behavior, and were not very active. Fortunately, the weather warmed up and both bears are eating much more consistently.

The two bears will remain in the Center’s Bear Pen for at least the next week while they gain weight.
