Snakes, Bears, Toads, and Birds August 2021

A selection of recent photos

My son and I were in the BC Wildlife Park. This is a place for injured or abandoned wildlife and they rehab and release as much as possible. While standing inside the property my son spotted this wild Black Bear casually feeding on Saskatoon Berries just outside the park boundary. It’s not every day you pay to see local wildlife in enclosures and end up photographing wild stuff from inside the property!
