Here’s the picture of Ted from November 14 that shows the white hairs that come with age in both bears and humans. The photo was left off the update last night, however it is now showing. Ted will turn 25 in 13 days on January 17, the day of his birthday celebration.
The white hairs stand out against his black fur just as the color of the red fox named Pretty Girl stands out against the white snow.
Overnight, the young 6-point buck dropped an antler and shows the fresh, bloody spot where it was just yesterday.
Thank you for all you do.
