Jim and Susan were a loving couple who ran the Orphaned Life Center based in Otisville, New York. The hard-working duo took care of the bear sanctuary for a long time. Once in a while, they would have some volunteers who would help them with their work.
The couple loved their animals like their kids and ensured all their needs were met. The owners and a few staff members recently decided to surprise the animals. They agreed to send some colorful pumpkins on Thanksgiving.
The first ones to check the gourds were the massive resident of the sanctuary, Kimmy. She was a female Syrian-black crossbred. Kimmy was around 25 years old and was known for being a leader.
Her favorite fruit was apple and oranges, but she did not mind examining the delicious pumpkins kept for her. Soon, her friend Rosie, a female Kodiak bear of the same age, joined her and started investigating the fruits left on the ground.
Both tried to eat the fruits, but the poor creatures could not understand how to tear off the hard outer covering. It was tough cracking the pumpkins’ outer shell, and none of the bears understood the steps. Thus, making the whole situation extremely funny.
The volunteers at the sanctuary enjoyed the beautiful and majestic bears having a fun-filled day before they got ready for their winter nap (hibernation). Well, gourds are an excellent example of a balanced diet and do not contain anything toxic for wild animals.
After trying their best to crack open the pumpkin, both the bears decided that getting some human help was best. Thus, they waited for the owners to serve them the delicious fruit.
