DG wants to see a bear in the wild. He has tried in Alaska, he even tried to talk one of the locals in Anchorage into taking him out to the local dump at snack time. But she was afraid of becoming the snack, apparently she had the windows broken out of her car in a parking lot behind the Anchorage Police department a couple of months earlier when she left her lunch on the seat one warm spring day. There is a line in a promo for a TV programing that says "that warm fuzzy bear can rip your head off and eat you when it wants to." For now I am content to visit indoor bears, like this cute little trio in the National Portrait Gallery in DC.
Lions and Tiger and Bears, oh my!
