Meet Little Anne

Little Anne is a female American black bear (Ursus americanus) who was born in early spring of 2011.   Food is a huge motivator for black bears, and that is exactly how a church congregation in north Georgia lured Little Anne out of a tree.  They assumed she was separated from her mother by a series of devastating storms, and attempted to make Little Anne their church mascot until she was confiscated by the Georgia Department of Natural Resources and brought to Noah’s Ark weeks later.  “Little” Anne is still fairly little, weighing roughly 200 lbs.  But don’t let her small size fool you: this bear is one of the smartest, feistiest animals at the sanctuary!
