PULLMAN, Wash. — A three-year-old female grizzly bear named Lucy from Montana Grizzly Encounter in Bozeman made the trip to Washington State University on Thursday for specialized care.
 
Lucy suffered two grand mal seizures on January 9. Since then she has become more aggressive and lethargic. She is at WSU for the Neurology and Neurosurgery Service.

She had an MRI evaluation of her head and neck.

The images from the MRI may or may not show a cause for the seizures but are only part of a complete examination and diagnostic work-up.
