ABR welcomesRipley!!

We also commend the Gatlinburg Police Officers who rescued her.

Our first report was a cub in the planter in front of the Sky Lift office…she was eating pansies. Next, she traveled the Parkway and ended up at Ripley’s Aquarium.

The Gatlinburg Police alerted TWRA and ABR and, within an hour, Ripley was safe and eating apples while she waited to be admitted to ABR.

Last night she settled in a nestbox in the crib with Friday and Pressley, eating all the while (grapes, apples, baby carrots and yogurt!). Soon, Pressley was shaking the box and talking to Ripley…”come on out…we’ll take care of you!!”

The new “Trio” are all settled this morning and will no doubt have a restful day.
