Here at AWCC, we often get asked if our bears dig their own dens, so today we’re providing some interesting brown bear facts regarding winter and hibernation. While our black bears have dens we’ve made for them, our brown bears love to make their own. In the featured photo you can check out Patron’s recent handy work in preparation for her winter’s rest. Patron did the majority of the work on this den, digging tirelessly day after day to ensure she had a nice, warm place to hunker down for the winter. However, this did not stop JB and Hugo from making themselves at home and taking advantage of her hard work!
