The Topeka Zoo has temporarily postponed a black bear exhibit after adopting a second orphaned cub.
The zoo took in a female cub named Valor this month who had been orphaned in Alaska. Zookeepers on Tuesday introduced her to their other cub, Independence.
The exhibit tours have been postponed so the animals can get used to each other. It’s unclear when the exhibit will reopen.
The cubs will live together until they are old enough to meet Sneak and Peak, adult black bears who arrived at the zoo in 1996 from Peoria, Illinois.
