North American Black Bear

Born 1999


Satank and her sister, Mahto came to us from a breeding, photography and education facility out west.   When they grew up and outlived their usefulness for education programs Indigo Mountain was contacted to provide a lifelong home.  


Satank tends to be slightly more nervous and a less trusting of people than her sister.  But she loves the company of Mahto and Tenaya.  She is very playful, curious and extremely intelligent.  She loves to play with tires more than any other enrichment toy.  She sits in them, tugs on them and can sometimes be seen throwing them around.
