Grandfather Mountain workers are mourning the loss of Dakota the Black Bear, who passed away Saturday due to complications following a prolonged battle with cancer.

Dakota came to Grandfather Mountain in April of 1997. She was about 10 weeks old when she arrived and the sweetest little bear, Grandfather Mountain officials wrote on their Facebook page Monday.

As she grew older, her personality changed a bit. Over the years, she has commonly adopted the nickname, “Crazy Bear.”
