ALBANY - Three furry friends were introduced today at the Parks at Chehaw. Berrie, an orphaned black bear from Alaska, was introduced to Chehaw residents Rosie and Theodore.

Berrie made her way to Albany in August. Her mother was killed by two hunters. Upon arriving at the Parks at Chehaw, she was quarantined and treated for parasites, a normal process for new animals.

Assistant Curator Jan Thompson said the bears were very friendly with each other. "They are just having a blast," she said. "They have been playful all day. They take little rests in between. It couldn't have gone better."

Alligator feeding, another popular venue at the park, will come to an end Sunday but only for this season. Gators begin to hibernate during the winter, so they're not as hungry. The last public feeding will be Sunday.
