Babies Grow Up!!
There’s nothing cuter than a baby bear, which is why some people purchase them as pets. The reality is they grow up to be a 300-pound omnivore that can eat up to 30-50 pounds of food per day. As a result the owners find they do not have the means to take proper care of these animals. Our three-acre bear enclosure will provide abandoned bears a place to run, play and swim.
4 Black Bears (Ursus americanus). All 4 black bears were ‘pets’. The oldest, Pocahontas, is 30+, the youngest (Maumee) was confiscated from an apartment when she was less than 1 year old. We currently have 3 females and 1 male (neutered prior to coming to The Red Wolf Sanctuary)
