I wasn't sure if I wanted to go into one of the places that has bears, it's kind of sad to see how they live. We decided to go. It wasn't too bad. The cages were quite clean and had clean water. It is sad to see that they basically live in concrete pens with no natural footing, but they were fat and seemed well fed. They were bored, pacing quite often, except for the Asiatic bears, they were pretty content it seemed. Once was enough for me. The smell is pretty strong, bears are quite fragrant.
