Black Bear yearling #17-1102 update

Black Bear yearling #17-1102 has been doing well since his admission; the bear is eating regularly. On Sunday, May 28, the bear was transitioned to a regular bear diet — a mix of hard dog food, seeds, nuts, insects, veggies, and fruits — and the rehabilitation team reports that the bear has been eating well. As long as the bear continues eating, the yearling should be able to be moved to the Bear Complex at some point, where he can continue to put on weight prior to release.
