Tasha, Chloe, Cubs, and a Fox - UPDATE October 24, 2021

Red FoxRed FoxAt the Bear Center, Tasha is busy raking bedding for her den Click here for video. At the WRI, Chloe and her cubs continue to add nutrients for the winter. They were here last night at 8:35 PM and I suspect will be here again. I’m wondering if they have a den nearby. I remember when Blackheart had a den a mile away but continued bulking up for the births of Dot and Donna. Not all bears are alike. Three adolescent males are still coming to the WRI, too. Along with learning a little more each day about bear behavior, it is nice to see the red fox peek in the window. At the Bear Center, a pine marten is adding excitement. It somehow got into Lucky’s pen Click here for video.

Ted and Lucky got straw on this last day the Bear Center will be open this year.

Thank you for all you do.
