CJOB's Kim Lawson reporting
The Province has confirmed the orphaned bear cub, Makoon has a fellow furry friend at Assiniboine Park Zoo. A spokesperson for the Provincial government told CJOB in late April, another young bear cub was found in Southeastern Manitoba. It is six months old. Makoon is five months. The bears have socialized well together. A one-year-old bear was taken to the zoo after being found in Southeastern Manitoba in February. That bear has a home at the zoo. No decision has been made about whether Makoon and the other young bear will be returned to the wild.
