Black Bear cub #18-2921 update

Black Bear cub #18-2921 [Green/Orange Tags aka “jaw bear”] was moved to the transition area of yard #1 in the Black Bear Complex today. The bear was extremely difficult to dart and anesthetize, and, in the end, the team shifted the bear into a Zinger crate. The crate was transported to the Bear Complex, and the cub was put in the transition area with Black Bear #18-2926 [Pink/Orange Tags].

The two bears on the other side of the Large Mammal Isolation enclosure – Red/White Tags and Orange/Yellow Tags – were also moved to the Bear Complex today. Those bears are currently in the main area of yard #1; the connecting door will likely be opened on January 4, giving the four bears access to all of yard #1.
