ZooMontana is now the temporary home to two orphaned grizzly bear cubs.  The sibling cubs, a 104-pound yearling female grizzly bear and a 123-pound yearling male, were captured near Ferndale in northwestern Montana July 15 when their mother was removed by Montana Fish, Wildlife and Parks Service. For approximately a year, prior to completion of a new bear habitat in St. Louis, ZooMontana will care for the cubs.  The cubs will be available for public and press viewing in the coming weeks. When the new Grizzly Ridge habitat is completed in mid-2017, the bears will move to the Saint Louis Zoo.
