Snickers is a favorite at AWCC! He is a gregarious little fellow after being raised in a home. After discovery, he was relocated to AWCC. Snickers is excellent for school presentations where he will come out of his carrier for the afternoon to entertain and teach the kids personally. Snickers became a star, when a Youtube video of him went viral, receiving over 5 million views! Watch the video below.
Kit came to us in the spring of 2015 at the age of one. He was brought in as an amputee after getting his leg caught in a trap. near Anchorage. He tried getting the trap off, and, after failing, wandered. He was found having climbed through a fence with his body on one side and the trap stuck in the fence, not budging. With the help of Dr. Wilson and the rest of Alaska Zoo staff, Kit was brought in for surgery, then permanently placed at AWCC. He is often found munching on walnuts or climbing over the logs in his enclosure!
