Among the many success stories behind the animal rehabilitation efforts of Moonridge - the tale of Tutu the unruly grizzly stands out among the rest. On numerous occasions Tutu invaded Yellowstone National Park; threatening visitors, rummaging through garbage and just causing an all out uproar. As part of Yellowstone's policy, dangerous animals are removed from public areas for obvious safety reasons. In 1995, Tutu and her two cubs were relocated to the Woodland Park Zoo in Seattle, but her disorderly conduct continued, and she was ordered to be euthanized.
In effort to save Tutu's life, the Moonridge Animal Park began raising money to have her stay with them. With the help of the community, and generous contributors she was relocated to Moonridge where her grizzly angst is now in check. Visitors can see Tutu and her cubs in the grizzly exhibit.
