Today I headed to the zoo since they have free admission on Canada Day. I arrived when the zoo opened and it was packed. The parking lot was like a zoo. Here are some photos..
White (black) bear. A few years ago people discovered a white cub with its black colored mother bear. People were feeding the bears along the highway which is stupid thing to do. The mother ended up being hit by a car. Luckily the zoo adopted the cub. Her name is Maskwa which means 'bear' in the Cree (Indian) language.
Grizzly Bear. Not found in the Province I live in. G. Bears are found in Alberta and British Columbia.
Ooooo, look at those little meerkats!! Cute!! I went to Banff on holiday last year and was gutted to find out all the bears were hibernating so we went to Calgary zoo, I didn't see any bears there either cos the path had flooded and we couldn't get around it!! I've still never seen a bear That'll be on my checklist of things to do before I die!! Lol! xx
