Grizzly comes out of ‘shadow’ after storm

"Shadow" the grizzly bear returned to her enclosure at the Greater Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove on Saturday morning.

“Shadow” the grizzly bear returned to her enclosure at the Greater Vancouver Zoo in Aldergrove on Saturday morning.

She had been temporarily relocated to a safe enclosure after last weekend’s windstorm caused severe damage to her larger space and a tree had knocked down her fence.

Shadow, who was brought to the zoo as an orphaned cub by conservation officers, had not been a danger to anyone while her fence was down and instead had been frightened by the crashing trees and had tried to hide.

“We have done an extensive amount of work in her enclosure, cleaning up shrubbery and such, so she should be extremely excited and it will be like coming out to a new home for her,” said general manager Jody Henderson.

Special food treats were laid out by zoo staff in her enclosure for her to enjoy, and portions of the fallen trees were also left for her to climb on.
