Animals – wild and not-so-wild

We finally got to go to the Alaska Wildlife Conservancy Center today! This is an Alaska Brown Bear. Brown bears are the same species as grizzlies. She has been trained to entertain visitors and will never be released into the wild. She was orphaned as an infant cub. So she was never able to learn how to be wild from her mom.

These are Musk Oxen. I remember trying to sleep in my curlers too!

There were 4 little moose calves that were rescued from various places. They will be able to be released into the wild after they grow up a little more.

These Dall Sheep were up above the highway.
