She was transferred to the Wild Animal Sanctuary (WAS) in Colorado and has been hibernating in a small cage. The small space has helped her to adapt so she could feel secure in her new surroundings. She woke up last week, and is just starting to explore her expansive new home.
"Her coat looks nice and she seems very calm and happy," Pat Craig, executive director of WAS, told The Dodo. He noted that Ricki will come out for a few hours at a time to investigate her new home, then run back to the safety of her cage.
