October enrichment videos

Posted by scott.weybright | October 26, 2017
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.

Earlier this month, a generous group donated several elk legs for the bears. As you can see, they enjoyed the extra protein.
