SNICKERS, THE ORPHAN BLACK BEAR
Snickers was the result of a black bear
mother trying to make ends meet for her family by breaking into cabins where food was left at the window ledge or on the stove nearby. Unfortunately, the resident called a government agency and received a depredation permit to shoot the mother bear, leaving Snickers at twelve pounds to fend for herself. Eventually Snickers came to live at Wildhaven as an exhibit animal.
