For [Mostly] Wordless Wednesday, have a gander at my grizzly friend.
This was a grizzly at the Wild Animal Sanctuary. He was hurt, so was away from the other grizzlies. We watched as he limped over to this water tub and delicately climbed inside, which took a couple minutes. His sigh of relief caused all of us to relax noticeably, probably none of us having realized how tense we were watching him and willing him into that tub. He put his head down on the side and shut his eyes in relief. No idea what the injury was, but it appeared to be to his paw and/or leg. Doesn't he have a sweet face?
