Patient Updates

Grizzly Bear was released after 72 days in our care.

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

Grizzly is very aware of all activity around him. He is always looking around over the rim of his tub, and now that he's been moved to a pool, he misses little of what's going on.

Looks like Grizzly still doesn't quite appreciate the fish he's being offered. But he'll get there eventually...
