A Wet and Lazy Week for the Bears
Despite some rain, Grinder and Coola have been enjoying a lazy week in their upper pond habitat. The bears have made themselves day beds up in the treed area and spend the late mornings and afternoons lying around watching guests play 'spot the bear'. The easiest way is to look for the furry "rocks"!
We estimate that Grinder and Coola have now put on probably about a hundred pounds each since coming out of hibernation. This is normal as they recoup some of the lost body mass from hibernation. Their appetites have once again decreased, indicating to us that they have reached a stable weight that they are comfy to maintain for the summer.
Once we get into October, however, the bears will start to forage extensively and eat as much as they can to bulk up for next winter!
