Black Bear cubs of 2020 update

With 17 Black Bear cubs in the Center's Large Mammal Isolation enclosure, the rehabilitation staff have their hands full trying to manage and feed this "sloth" of bear cubs! In general, the cubs are doing well and the staff are careful to monitor feeding times to ensure that the smaller cubs are getting their portion of formula. During the past weekend, the staff decided to separate the larger three cubs -- Yellow Tag, White Tag, and Orange Tag -- into the left side of the Large Mammal enclosure. These three cubs are older and larger than the others, and the staff plan to move them to the Black Bear Complex during the week of May 25. 

On Monday, the staff noted that Double White Tag had torn a nail on one of her front paws; she was taken into the hospital for a quick assessment and treatment and then returned to the enclosure with the other bears.
