Appalachian Bear Rescue

More releases!

On April 10th, two more ABR bears were released back into the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

Two females, Parker and Bella, were admitted on March 2nd.  Each of them weighed under 20 pounds when they came in for rehab.  By gaining about a pound a day during their stay with us, they both were released at a weight  of 50 pounds each!  It is amazing how rapidly little bears gain weight!  We wish them both a happy and safe life roaming the national park.

Meanwhile, there are still several bears waiting their turn for release.  Here are a couple of pictures taken yesterday in the Wild Side.
