Our female yearling, #262 (Dani Bear) showed the curators that she was tired of being confined in the Acclimation Pen.  Curator Janet obliged by releasing her into Wild Enclosure #4, where Summitt Bear is residing.  Here is the story in photos.

We begin with Dani Bear on the platform in the Acclimation Pen.  There is the gate that leads outside.
