Bonnie the Black Bear
I came from Ohio where my care was regrettable; now that I'm here,I hope to be unforgettable.Climbing and wading are so new to me; I spent a lot of time in a small cage, you see. Life now has promise, my future is bright; I thank Popcorn Park for making things right.
Bonnie is one of three American black bears rescued by Popcorn Park Zoo. She was four years old when we rescued the trio in 2006, and was owned by a careless breeder who raised them to be sold, but often had too many. The owner would walk Bonnie around on a leash at county fairs. Now Bonnie has a much more natural environment, and can climb trees and swim. Being a bit older than the other two, Bonnie was more mature, and a bit aloof. She played with the two "kids", Maryann and Ginger (who has since passed away), but also likes some alone time. Even so, Bonnie and MaryAnn have become good buddies and enjoy playing together. Lovely Bonnie would love some sponsors.
