At the WSU Bear Research, Education, and Conservation Center, we have an enrichment program aimed at keeping our bears physically healthy and mentally stimulated. Every month, we’ll showcase the new or different activities and physical challenges our bears can tackle.
This month, a new pulley item was added. The bears have to pull down on the cut up tires to bring down a plastic ball. The ball is smeared with peanut butter and filled with kibble and fruit treats. But if they let go, the ball goes back up and they have to start over.
