These sisters came to us about 16 months ago, sick, underweight, and orphaned.  Our top flight veterinary and keeper staff have returned them to health and given them a happy life.  As they continue to rapidly grow, they need more space than we're able to provide.  So, now it's time for the next stop in their journey to a permanent home in South Dakota. 

We know how much our guests love these grizzly sisters and we hope you can stop by to say goodbye!  Their last day on exhibit is Tuesday, March 21st.

We'll have special bear paw-print coloring pages where you can include your goodbye message to the cubs.  These will be displayed along the fence of the "Bear Den" area until the cubs leave.  There will also be a beary special frozen enrichment for the girls on Sunday, March 19th, at 1:30pm.  It will be alot of fun to watch!
