In our last post about Cub #223, we promised to give you the latest news about the other, most recent arrivals at ABR.  It is good news, indeed!  Cub #218 Derby Bear, Cub #220 Pumpkin Bear, and Cub #221 Gamble Bear have joined Cub #217 Tedford Bear in his Wild Enclosure.  It is the same Wild Enclosure that housed Woody Bear, the yearling cub who spent two months at ABR in order to relearn proper wild behavior.  These photos show how the cubs entered their new space, and what their first reaction was – can you guess?  Right! They climbed trees!

Soon, we hope to report that the newest arrivals, little Shelby and Tucker will be able to join the other cubs and learn to be wild bears.
