Black Bears of 2016 update

On Saturday, Dr. Peach was able to dart Pink/Green Tags [Bear #16-2409, the two-year-old bear] and move her to the Large Mammal Isolation enclosure in preparation for release. The bear’s physical exam showed no issues or abnormalities; she has a very healthy body condition and her hair coat looks good. The bear weighed in at 27.7 kg.

The remaining bears in the transition area will be darted and examined this week as the veterinary team is able; we have not yet received word from VDGIF about when the next bear release day will be.
