Popcorn the short-tailed Weasel made the move back to her regular enclosure on Tuesday. She has been staying in a private area of the park due to issues with wildfire smoke this summer.
Thanks to the rain this weekend — just under an inch in Grants Pass — the Oregon Department of Forestry Southwest Oregon District lowered the fire danger level for the area from Extreme to Moderate. The rain also helped tamp down wildfires in Southern Oregon, clearing the skies.
All that allows Popcorn to move back to her enclosure, just in time for the beginning of fall.
Be sure to check her out as her coat will soon start to change from brown and yellow to nearly all-white.
