Due to the releases yesterday, some of the bears have been shuffled around a bit.

Mackie was released; hence his former roommate, Eleanor, now has a new roomie, little Dell.  Typically, since she is a female, she will start to “mother” him, since he is so much smaller than she is.  We have seen this many times before as the young sows take on a maternal role with yearlings that are actually the same age. It will be interesting to see if this happens again.

Just as a reminder, here are photos of Eleanor and Dell.  Eleanor, you will recall, is our “cinnamon” phase bear.
