Generously supported by Adopt-an-Animal "parents:
An imprint, she was taken from the den at only a few days old and raised the first three months in someone's living room with domestic cats and dogs. She was then given up to Fish and Wildlife in 2008 and her permanent home is now here at Turtle Bay, as she cannot be released. When Inali sees something new, she runs to it instead of away from it. When Inali's trainers enter her exhibit, she approaches making a whimpering noise and raises her back leg to "ask" for scratches.
