Bears Just Want to Have Fun

Two European brown bears at home at an animal park in Bavaria, Germany treated visitors to quite a spectacle. For over 20 minutes the 5 year old male and female bears frolicked and played like children in the snow. They would slide down the hill, run back up and slide down, with smiles on their faces.

Not only were they enjoying themselves, the visitors were given a laugh for the day watching the bears enjoy themselves so immensely. Photographer Duncan Usher had come to the park for the day to try to capture some live action shots of the wildlife there. Little did he know what a treat he was in for. He said he had a hard time taking photos since he was laughing so hard himself at the bears. After their "sledding" fun the bears played in the snow, then both took off in separate directions when they were all played out. From
