Bears... nature's natural jesters

Bears are absolutely amazing in so many ways! From their incredible sense of smell, phenomenal intellect, all the way to their ability to sleep through winter... bears simply take the cake!

Actually, sometimes it's their fondness of taking cake (or hot dogs or Twinkies® or...) that get them into trouble! Part of our job isn't just knowing what's fun or cool about bears, it's knowing how to keep them from getting into trouble!
