Curator Coy wanted to find out if the cubs are eating the bear diet pellets that have essential nutrients that their growing bodies need.  Knowing that they prefer the fruits, he cut down on those tasty items and increased the quantity of pellets.  Then, by setting up the trail cam he was able to actually observe the cubs eating the pellets.  Click here to see the cubs foraging for and eating the bear pellets.  At the end, just before ducking back into the bushes, you’ll see Bonnie Blue or Ridgeway shaking the way dogs do – a good indication that thepool is being used!  Our weather has been very warm, so we don’t blame them for taking a dip.
