A year ago today, IEAS staff and resident bears were in the process of a few big moves! It was at this time in 2010 that Pixie, Rowdy, and Rascal made the trek to the "adult" side of the 10 acre Bear Orphanage. Here they joined Dakar, Meyote, Lucky and Lucy. They've come so far since that day. Lucky has truly bonded with every other bear in the Orphanage and in truth, all of the bears get along amazingly well!
The second big move going on one year ago was Scooter and Greta letting go of their quarantine habitat to join Scamp on their five acre side of Bear Orphanage. Talk about bears getting along amazingly! These three are inseparable. You would be hard pressed to find a happier bear trio than this set of American black bears living at IEAS. With such distinct personalities, Scooter, Greta, and Scamp fit each other perfectly!

It's so great for us to see how far these special animals can come in just one year. Soon enough, Scoundrel will join the group in Bear Orphanage and we look so forward to seeing his progress in one year, seeing how far he has already come!
