Updates on the Two New Cubs!

We've had a few posts about how Thor and Scoundrel are doing here at IEAS, but we wanted to give you all a thorough update! Both of these two cubs have made huge leaps and bounds in the past few weeks.

When Thor first arrived, he was very nervous and very unsure of the intentions of his human caretakers. Now, a little over a month later, Thor is a confident and brave little cougar! Though he is certainly still a cub, with traces of his baby spots still visible, Thor has more than doubled in size since his arrival! He spends the majority of his time in the outdoor portion of his habitat at quarantine and loves to watch us all working. He has even come to really enjoy visits from those caretakers he trusts!

Scoundrel took a little longer to warm up to us initially but has come such a long way. We have found out so much about his personality, his likes (grapes) and dislikes (oranges), and because he has been spending so much extra time outside of his house lately, we have really gotten to see what an adorable little bear he is! He, like Thor, is gaining so much confidence and will even approach a visitor to say hello!

We are so glad to have these two handsome boys living at IEAS and we are so happy that they have come such a long way! We are excited to see them grow up at the Sanctuary!

You can also ADOPT Thor or Scoundrel and visit them when they move to their permanent habitats!
