Black Bear #17-1767 update

Black Bear #17-1767 has been healing well during the past week and is nearly at the two-week post-op mark. The bear has been eating well and bearing weight on all four legs equally. On July 26, the staff moved the yearling to the chute of the Large Mammal Isolation enclosure; this will allow the bear a little more room than a zinger crate and will allow her to see and smell a more natural environment. The bear will need to remain in this small space to heal for several more weeks before she’s allowed to be more active in a larger space.
