A Bear's Bounty
Photo and caption by Terri Chapman
This American Black Bear is enjoying the benefits of "Snow Day" at the Los Angeles Zoo. The Union Ice Company blanketed many animal enclosures with fresh snow, as part of an environmental enrichment program to help maintain the wellbeing of the animals, and the animal keepers built snowman decorated with food treats. In this photograph, the bear was eating the berries off a Cotoneaster bush.
