Couple Adopts Twin Bear Cubs Rejected By Their Mother.
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.
David and Lana Fechter, who run a wildlife reserve on their West Bend property, took in the male cubs from a Chicago zoo.
And while they are small and adorably cute, the couple say the nine-week-old Siberian bear cubs are keeping them on their toes.
