Bear country

We were awestruck when we saw this beautiful scenery at the zoo in Emmen. Here they made a living area for the Kodiak bears. We didn't see much of the bears, just some large brown dots snoring away. The Kodiak bear is also known as the Alaskan brown bear. They live on the islands of the Kodiak Archipelago in Alaska.

Imagine having to "move" this kind of scenery to the new zoo outside town.
