Timmy was found orphaned in Elk Mountain, Wyoming by a good samaritan who alerted authorities to this helpless cub. He was transported by Game Warden Ryan Kenneda to the Sybille Research Center. He was taken care of for three weeks by Dr. Mary Wood, DVM, MPH and staff of the State Wildlife Vet Clinic before being transported to IEAS by Animal Behaviorist Louis Dorfman and his wife, Julia. He arrived at IEAS weighing only 10 pounds with lots of adjusting to do and is a welcomed new member of the Sanctuary family!
Timmy has been adjusting to his new life at the Sanctuary very well. This intelligent cub is quickly learning, with the help of our Emotional Enrichment Program, that we are a source of security and comfort for him. IEAS Animal Behaviorist Louis Dorfman and Sanctuary staff have been spending a great deal of time with Timmy to help him adjust to his new home, and he is eagerly accepting them as his new family. He is playful, active, and as curious as bears come! He has been learning to climb, playing in the grass, and figuring out what it means to be a bear at IEAS!
