ABR admitted Bear Cub #269 on May 11, 2018.  A three-month-old, orphaned female, she is from Kentucky and was rescued in that adjacent state and brought to ABR for care.  Her nickname is Viola Bear.  Of course she went to the UT College of Veterinary Medicine for her intake exam, and was found to be injured.  We’ll post the details of her injury and treatment tomorrow.  Suffice it to say that at the present time she is housed in the Cub Nursery and will be monitored closely by the curators.  Here is her introductory photo.

Say hello to Cub #269 – Viola Bear from Kentucky!

Viola Bear is the same age as Clementine, but is smaller.  She weighed just 4.4 pounds, a full pound less than Clementine weighed when she arrived.
