Gustavo First Step

Gustavo bolts out of his transport cage into the quarantine area at the Cleveland Amory Black Beauty Ranch.

When Gus discovered his private den at Black Beauty, he stayed inside much of the time, enjoying the shade and the solitude. The animal care staff never pressured him and allowed him to acclimate to his new surroundings at his own pace. Slowly but surely he began to emerge from his den, scratch on his log, and even play with his giant enrichment ball—which has become a huge favorite.
