Apollo Bear, who was released from the Appalachian Bear Rescue at the beginning of December, has not entered hibernation yet.
ABR gave Apollo a GPS collar to track how he copes following surgery to repair his broken leg.
"We continue to receive reports of male bears still up and about, so he’s not alone in his decision to stay up late. Bears in our area don’t usually hibernate until late December and male bears may not hibernate at all," ABR wrote in their Facebook post Friday.
The post continued on to say Apollo isn't roaming far from his release site, so he's finding what he needs close to home.
Apollo Bear arrived at ABR on Aug. 18 and was released on Dec. 4.
