MacKenzie has been having a good month; she is extremely interactive with staff, which is always a good indication that she’s feeling well. The only issue has been with branches breaking off in the snow. One of the White Pine branches landed inside the enclosure and has caused her a little anxiety. It’s wedged in the snow and can’t be moved by hand, and needs some saw work. We will wait to do that until we can move MacKenzie and Lakota into the holding area, so we don’t cause any more anxiety for her. This will have to wait until some snow melt to get access to the holding area, so in the mean time, MacKenzie has created a new path around the tree limb. Lakota has no problem with it, and enjoys sticking her head in the limbs. MacKenzie’s limited vision is probably impacting her reactions.
