Mercedes

No not a car but one of the last few Polar Bears in a zoo in the UK.
Edinburgh zoo to be precise.
We were up in Scotland last week, the kids started acting like caged animals, so we took them to see some.

Enjoy

Re: Mercedes

Is this the bear that the ridiculous lady climbed over the fence to be with? He was glad she was there and kept biting her and pulling her back in.
She surely will be nominated for a Darwin Award.
