As we posted, little Chicory Bear was released into Wild Enclosure #1 a few days ago. The cubs already in that enclosure were Ferdinand, Tweetsie, and Dumplin’. Today’s photos show Chicory as she explored the enclosure and tentatively approached where a couple of the resident cubs were playing. She didn’t go too close, though. She seems to be a shy little bear.
It may take a few days for Chicory to become a part of the “pack,” but she will integrate into the group soon, we are sure. Let’s see how long it takes. Cubs are very social, so we don’t think it will take too long.
