A big, big girl ~
When I saw this black bear I thought to myself, "Now that's a BIG bear!" and then I learned from the newspaper archives that, yes, she is considered by the experts to be a big bear - 350 pounds.

Sadly, this beautiful girl died in 2014. The Museum's cub, Strawberry, was acquired in 2014 and here is more news and photos about this cutie.
