Yea, when I was a child there were still Gypsies leading a bear along the streets and they made him dance. After the bear danced, they would give him beer. He was very happy about the beer. Um...

I remember seeing that too. Funny to watch, but the bear was kept in a very small cage. I don't think that's allowed anymore...

Actually, I have seen a friendly bear! LOL! If you look at my gallery, you will find a photo of me with a bear at the Toledo Zoo that just LOVED people and he would stay at the glass and put his face down by the seal of the glass and "blow" at you and put his paws up on the glass to "touch" you! It was amazing!!! I couldn't believe it! The locals told me that he always does it because he loves people.....

The problems with bears is that they lack mimic. But yes, I would say I saw a frienly bear yet ^^

The females and the cubs were playing around quite happily, but the male was kept alone next to them, and he looked a bit frustrated to me.

My, look at that smile :XD: Makes you wonder if he's happy to see you or not :D Excellent shot!

Thanks, Hanafae :) No, he doesn't look too happy. There were two of these bears in a rather small enclosure, so that's probably why.
