A more "Bear-able" Chehaw

June 18, 2003

Albany - Hot summers days will be more "bear-able" at the Parks of Chehaw, thanks to two new additions. The zoo recently received a pair of about five month old black bear cubs named Rosey and Theodore.

The brother and sister were found in upstate South Carolina after their mother died. The Park picked up the bears Monday and brought them to their new home. "they cute and energetic," said Curator Eddie Lee Holsey. "I just know our visitor will love to watch them."

"I hope the new bears will encourage someone or a corporation to help us build a new bear exhibit," said Glenn Dobrogoz, Parks Director.

Full grown black bears can weigh 400 pounds. The zoo might also adopt another black bear cub from Alaska found hungry and fighting to survive. The bears will be kept in quarantine for 30 days, and then the public can come and see them.
