Bam Bam will be moved from his current concrete and wire enclosure into his new half acre habitat. The new space features an in-ground swimming pool with a waterfall and will allow Bam Bam to feel the grass between his paws for the first time.

They say they have a 450 acre habitat, and they can only spare 1/2 an acre for Bam Bam?

Noted. I thank the Turpentine Creek Rescue for giving a better environment to Bam Bam the Grizzly Bear, however I sure wish he could be introduced back into the wild.
Thank You Cher.
