Ditto that! I've pet a gator, fed a wild racoon and wild squirrel, my friend came hand to paw with one of Seigfreid & Roy's white tigers, but I've never seen a polar bear up close and personal (zoos don't exactly count, now do they?). You're right Marissa, that would be on beautiful sight.

Come to think of it, when I was a kid we came across a mother bear (can't remember if it was brown or black) with some cubs in the Smoky Mountains --- we had food in the trunk and they came right up to the trunk and car windows -- stopped traffic dead! Very cool, but not a polar bear.
