Harmony Hill is the new home for two grizzly bears that were rescued in 2002. Tundra and Kootenai both needed to be rescued from the wild in order to survive.  Kootenai was separated from his mother and his sibling was hit by a car.  Tundra’s mother had to be euthanized because she became a nuisance to a community in Alaska.
