Children Commune With Sacred Polar Bears
Posted by Dave Blount at February 10, 2011 8:10 AM
At the Cochrane Polar Bear Habitat in Cochrane, Ontario, children are invited to swim inside a wading pool attached to a polar bear enclosure, getting as close to the Coca Cola mascot as safety, and five centimeters of shatterproof glass, permit.
If enough people grow up thinking of these hellish beasts as cuddly fuzz bundles rather than as vicious killers that hunt humans for food, maybe we'll be treated to more entertaining scenes like the one at the Berlin Zoo, where a kook named Sandy K jumped into a polar bear enclosure to say hi to her furry friends and was barely rescued in time.
On a tip from Karpet.
