What is the bear necessity of life on a hot summer day? Well, water of course. My wife and I enjoyed watching this grizzly bear reveling in its watering hole at the Wild Animal Sanctuary just to the east of Denver, Colorado. The Sanctuary is a place that takes in all kinds of large animal rescues. This particular bear spent most of its life as a sideshow for a Russian circus act. When it arrived at the sanctuary it was addicted to nicotine. The addiction was introduced as a way to get the bears to follow commands. It is sad what humans can do to creatures for entertainment.
