Baby Ruth was found near a trail head in Homer, AK. It was very apparent she was being hand-fed and would often follow people around looking for food.
Since she was habituated with people, and is still very young, she was picked up by the ADF&G and brought to AWCC. This is a valuable lesson on why we discourage anyone from ever feeding wildlife. Animals quickly become reliant on humans and will no longer fend for themselves. Therefore, Baby Ruth is now in our care. Baby Ruth is currently on display near the moose observation deck. Baby Ruth loves her new home, walking on her back legs to ask for food, and enjoys hanging out with her care givers!
