Rare new addition to Space Farms/Beemerville, N.J/3/30/2015

  • 8 photos
  • Space Farms has three new additions to their zoo. Suzy, a rare Kodiak bear gave birth about six weeks ago to three new cubs. This is the first time the zoo had Kodiak cubs. New born cubs eyes and ears are sealed shut when they are born and have pink skin. Mom is their sole support and they listen to her very attentively. When the female bear knows she is pregnant she will dam herself up in the den. They go into a state of hyperplasia where their metabolism and blood pressure go down but are still mentally awake. Bear milk is 55% fat and at room temperature will get the consistency of pudding. Fred Space is a world renowned expert as well as a local expert. Space designed the special dens last year with multiple doors and dens.. This gives a sense of security when they are ready to hibernate. The male is penned on the other side for the safety and well being of the cubs. When the Hokkaido Bears in Japan were placed on the extinct list, the last pair was brought to Fred Space at the Zoo. His expert knowledge in bears made it possible to breed them with success.As the weather gets warmer, Suzy will be out in the sun frolicking with her cubs. Space Farms will be opening this weekend for the season. Stop by and see this rare breed.

Last year, Fredette raised nearly $700 St. Baldrick’s Foundation. This year he has found himself out of work, but he’s doing everything he can to help a good cause. • A close cut for kids with cancer • FRANKLIN — According to Franklin’s Irish Cottage Inn owner Damian Ryan, this was the sixth year that inn held a St. Baldrick’s Foundation fundraiser. Since the first such event in 2010, nearly $100,000 has been raised by Ryan for the cause. As a result of Sunday’s head shaving event, Ryan says that more and more donations are expected to come in over the next month and he is hopeful that this year’s annual goal will be met. • This year’s 12th Annual Sussex County St. Patrick's Day Parade in Newton featured Grand Marshals and long-time Franklin residents Dennis and Mary Harrington who chose St. Baldrick’s Foundation as this year’s charity of choice. Mrs. Harrington went a step further by having her long white hair totally shaved off for the charity and raised a considerable amount of money for St. Baldrick’s asking, “Who wouldn’t do it for the children?” • With music supplied by the Ray Sikora band, the interior of the restaurant was tightly packed with a crowd watching the two barber’s chairs and the before and after sequence of folks getting bald for a good cause. The St. Baldrick’s Foundation is a nonprofit group that raises funds for children’s cancer research.
