What a beauty she's become! She and her sister Sierra had such a difficult start, losing their mom as little cubs and found in a barn in Idaho, almost a year ago now. Their story is just one of the many reasons I'm so proud of our Zoo, and why I have such respect for all those that care for the animals day in and day out. I feel so fortunate for the chance to see them, up close and personal, and appreciate this species that lives so near but remains elusive.
