Should We Bring Back the Bear Pit at Golden Gate Park?

Thursday, January 8th, 2009

Everybody knows about the bison of Golden Gate Park, but history of the Bear Pit, which used to be near the Childrens Playground(?), is not as well-known. Big Grizzlies (like Monarch Bear, the “biggest in captivity“) and Black Bears were kept in what looks to be a very small area.

These days, the Grizzly Bears of San Francisco live in what appears to be a vastly superior environment.

But you make the call – check out the Hearst Grizzly Gulch at the 80 year old San Francisco Zoo when you can. Watch the orphan sister bears from Montana and see how much they frolic.

See you there!
