Black Bear yearling #17-1767 update

Black Bear #17-1767 has been doing well in the Large Mammal Isolation enclosure for the past week; the bear only has access to the chute that connects the two larger enclosures so that her movement is still limited on her healing leg. The staff check the bear each day; the yearling has been standing normally and bearing weight evenly on all four limbs. During the next month, the bear will remain in this area so that she continues to heal; radiographs are scheduled for September 8, which will be eight weeks after her surgery.
