    'Andy' - Meet The Animals

    Meet "Andy", who just arrived this morning at 7am. This is a cub from last year that likely lost his mother and went into hibernation with insufficient weight. Cubs on their own also use more resources staying warm than those that can huddle up with siblings and/or mom. As a result Andy woke up in need of nutrition and only found frozen ground. Andy's paws are raw from digging for feed and he is absolutely delighted with the spread of fruits we offered him on arrival.

    ***UPDATE***
    <Tues, Feb 11 2020>

    Now with us for 11 days Andy has settled down a lot. He is still very nervous around us and we, for obvious reasons, want him to stay that way. To that end he will be moving to an outside enclosure on Monday. After 515 bears through our door he once again showed us that we are still learning all the time. Apparently Andy despises apple peels, as he meticulously leaves the peels behind. LOL




    It takes a village and we are always humbled by the kindness shown by all involved.

    He made it to NLWS with the help of some wonderful humans! Many kind, thoughtful and mindful people, including the family that reported him, the Conservation Officers who caught him, Kim, Josh, Jackie and Bandstra Trucking who we want to thank with all our hearts.
