Yellowstone Bear World










Very near to Rexburg, Idaho is this fabulous park that has 37 bears (all bred in captivity) and a multitude of other animals (most of which were bred in captivity). Their famous members include the Coca-cola bear and the bear who played Baloo in the version of Jungle Book made several years ago. They have a place for the baby bears that they snatched out of the "dens" in the springtime. People get to ride through and throw a set amount of food out to the bears. If a female gets a lot of food she can have up to three cubs (she has to consistently get a lot of food). I got to ride in the front of the truck. It was fabulous!

Whenever my roommates at Ricks and I would drive past Bear World when we'd drive been Rexburg and IF, we seriously considered stopping. We never did, though. Too bad. It looks like fun. :)
