Come get an up close look as our zookeepers train Brown Bears Sadie, Haines, and Kenai daily on the Russia’s Grizzly Coat trail at 10:00 a.m. and 1:15 p.m. Watch these three grizzlies present paws, stand upright, show teeth on cue, and respond to other enrichments like ice and melons! Although these actions may look like tricks, they all correspond to important veterinary procedures and focus heavily on the bears’ health! Cooperating with humans to complete training demo activities keeps Haines, Sadie, and Kenai physically, psychologically, and behaviorally fit. Learn more about our intelligent Brown Bear trio and their various enrichment programs here.
