I snapped this picture of our 4 black bears eating breakfast together. Gus is the one looking up.
In the wild, black bears are solitary. This is definately a rare sight.
Our black bears are all rescues who weren’t able to be released back into the wild. Luckily we have a large enough exhibit for them that they are all able to have their own space. Sometimes they actually like spending time together. Often Gus and Yona can be seen sleeping close by and in the winter we’ve even see Mimi spooning Gus in the cave.
