As we posted recently, the vets who examined and treated Beignet Bear instructed the curators to keep her leg dry for a few days. That led to the puzzlement of the bears, who couldn’t understand why their pool was not full of water, especially in this hot weather. When the OK for Beignet to get wet was given, the pool was quickly filled. It used to be that the sound of water running into the pool frightened the cubs, but that is not the case any longer. In fact, the sound of water made the cubs hurry to watch, and to get in the water as soon as they could. Click here to see the video record of the cubs in their “whirlpool pool.”
