Our last post reviewed the life that Bear #258 – Summitt Bear – had at ABR. In this post we will show photos of the actual workup and release back into the wild.
This was the first step, and he was not a happy bear, being back in confinement!
Summitt was loaded into the carrier on the TWRA truck.
Thus concludes another successful release of a bear cared for at ABR. The curators stated that Summitt was an especially beautiful bear with a healthy, shiny coat of fur. He had gained 64.5 pounds during his stay. As always, we wish Summitt Bear a long and healthy life in the wild. He is back where he belongs. Goodbye and good luck, Summitt Bear!
