In Retirement, Grizzer continues to do well. His thick undercoat has grown back, and he enjoys the colder weather we have been getting in Ely. Grizzer tends to sleep in the Transition Area at night, and staff have added more hay to provide a comfortable, warm, area for him to rest.
Staff have also increased Grizzer’s daily feeding from 3lbs to 4lbs, to provide some extra nourishment going into Winter. He is on a rotating schedule of different meats including beef, bone dust, chicken, and his favorite-pork. Grizzer also gets either a deer leg or a small beaver carcass on Saturday nights when we feed the Exhibit Pack their deer carcass.
