Brotherly Love?

Uploaded: May 22, 2011


Axhi and Jim are sibling Alaskan Brown Bears at the Brookfield Zoo in Illinois. Jim went down into the dry moat and when he was ready to come back out, Axhi had a different opinion. After an assertive “conversation” Jim was allowed up.

Isn't it fun and interesting to watch the actions between animals? You have captured this scene with wonderful details, and emotions... Perfect presentation! 8o)

Thanks, Nancyj... I appreciate your comments. I forgot part of the story... Jim actually goes down the stairs into the moat backwards. It seemed odd... UNTIL we saw Axhi in action! #9424396
