Black Bear cub #17-1180 update

The veterinary team has continued to note intermittent neurologic symptoms in Black Bear cub #17-1180 during the past week. On July 27, the veterinary team will be drawing several blood samples from the cub – one after fasting, then another sample after the bear eats. These samples will be sent to an outside laboratory for bile acid tests. After all the samples are drawn today, the cub will be moved back to the Large Mammal Isolation enclosure for observation.
