ZOO TIMES: Mr Grizzly

Bear Bear Detroit Zoo Bear Detroit zoo Bear

I forget how many times I've been to the Detroit Zoo and each time the Grizzly Bear enclosure was quiet, no bears were coming out to play. In fact as the exhibit is a little hidden away I didn't even they were there until my third trip. But on our last trip as we turned the corner from the Griffe house we saw the furry brown butt of a Grizzly going back inside. We'd missed him again, or so we thought. We sat down for a little in the hope of another rare glimpse and a couple of minutes later we were granted an amazing view of this incredible creature as he was rooting around for food. Little did we know the Detroit Zoo is home to two Grizzles, the second coming out a little after to see what all the fuss was about.
