Clover

The Kermode bear, also known as the “spirit bear” (particularly in British Columbia), is a subspecies of the American black bear. Clover lives at the Kamloops WIldlife Center and he is the only such bear in captivity.

The yearling cub was found abandoned in northwestern British Columbia on the side of Terrace Mountain near Terrace. After two unsuccessful attempts to rehabilitate and release him back into the wild, the cub, now nicknamed ‘Clover’ by handlers, was sent to the park when conservation officers decided that he was not a candidate for relocation.

Animal rights group Lifeforce believes that the bear is healthy enough to survive on its own and that it should be relocated and released back into the wild.
