On June 25, ABR received two cubs from Fentress County. They are #337 (Lemon Drop) and #338 (Cosmo) Bear, and they are five-months old like our current residents. Lemon Drop is a female who weighs 26.4 pounds. Her brother Cosmo weighs 26.6 pounds.Sadly, they were orphaned when a landowner shot their mother after she broke into his dog pen. After their intake exam at UT, the sibling cubs will probably be in Hartley House for a few days before they are released into a Wild Enclosure.

Sibling cubs Lemon Drop and Cosmo Bear as they arrived at ABR.

Lemon Drop is the first female in the 2021 class. We’re sure that these two little cubs will get along well with the original three. Stay tuned.
