The bear probably said, 'Hey, little kid, check this out.'

My High School once did a really thoughtful play involving a trained bear who is exploring the fact that he is old and about to die. The day after the show started, the local newspaper printed a story about the play with the title:"Bear teachers children about death"Might make someone who hasn't seen it wonder just how a bear teaches someone about death...

OMG! that babies going to be eaten by that bear and all the mother can do is kiss it's little head goodbye. Way to caption the picture as if the photographer was not being clever.
