Patient Updates

Polar Bear was released after 209 days in our care.

You can see the list of all animals released at this release in the release record.

Polar Bear is being treated for an infection. To better control how much she eats while she is receiving medication, she has been temporarily moved to a separate pool.

The bigger pool seems to be working for Polar Bear.

Polar Bear is still in fish school, showing some interest in fish... but still needs some time.
