Her discolored teeth were the result of poor diet.

Her claws are quite formidable!

Since she came from the same area as the two male cubs, it is almost certain that she is the sister of Ruff and Tumble Bear.  She will be kept apart from them until she finishes her worm medication.  Then they can be reunited.  Welcome to Cherry Bear!
