Half A Smile by suezn Half A Smile by suezn
Brown Bear...The Louisville Zoo is currently home to the Grizzly Bear subspecies.

When a pine needle falls in the forest, the eagle sees it; the deer hears it, and the bear smells it.”

Thank you!  Yes...he was big.  There are three at this zoo.  They are Grizzly Bears.  The mother and her two cubs were brought over from Montana in 2010.  They had been identified and trapped as 
“nuisance bears” and faced an uncertain future.  So, Louisville has them now :)  I'd say close to 400-500 lbs!!
