This bear frolicking in the snow with a new toy (a bale of hay) will lift your spirits for those six more weeks of winter. I love watching bears and this is the one of the best bear videos on the web! I wonder what made him think of throwing it in the air? You're really going to enjoy this:

We normally see bears lumbering along scratching trees, biting salmon, sucking on berries. I've seen cubs play, but not a full-grown bear before.
That's what I need to combat winter... to play more. Basketball anyone? What do you do to stay active when it's gray and wet outside?
