David and Lana Fechter have recently adopted two adorable Siberian bear cubs that were rejected by their mother at a Chicago zoo.
The two nine-week-old male cubs, Lewis and Clark, are being kept in an inside closure and are being bottle fed. When the twins get bigger and more independent, they’ll be be given a large natural enclosure with ponds and ridges to live in at Shalom Wildlife Sanctuary. The Fechters have been running the 100-acre reserve, which is home to more than 200 animals, since 1979.
The Shalom Wildlife Sanctuary is one hour north of Milwaukee and it opens for visitors on May 1, when everyone will get to see Lewis and Clark along with elk, wolves, bison and other species.
