Some Release Photos
This is an ABR cub immediately after release - she climbed the first tree for safely while she gathered her wits and surveyed her new surroundings. She soon dashed into the forest with her other released companions.
In contrast, these two cubs show pure exuberance upon release! They never looked back...we had a quick second or two to photograph them (or not).
Thanks for the second chance, ABR!
