Black Bear cubs of 2017 update

At the end of last week, the rest of the bear cubs were moved to the Large Mammal Isolation enclosure. Bear cub #17-0760 [Double Green Tag] was isolated for a few more days until he was cleared to move in with the other cubs on May 15.

Wildlife rehabilitators Brie and Linda report that the cubs are active, wild, eating, growling, playing, and just generally crazy. The cubs are eating soft bear foods and receiving mush bowls twice a day; the youngest cub, No Tag, is still being bottle-fed twice a day.

Current weights are:

No Tag: 3.75 kg
Red Tag: 5.75 kg
Green Tag: 4.38 kg
White Tag: 4.96 kg
Orange Tag: 4.56 kg
Yellow Tag: 4.00 kg
