Tuesday 3 April 2012: Vandrew
this is Vandrew - posing nonchalantly in a pile of logs and branches - every so often he would try an pick one up and place it on his belly - think he was playing at being buried??? (I do have a photo of him lying there looking very dead - probably he would be amused at that but it looks a bit disturbing to blip)
he only has one eye and three legs - he lost his right front leg when he was snared in the wild.... we had to surgically remove his right eye about a year ago when specialists examined it and found he was totally blind and it was probably painful...
Vandrew is well loved - despite his years on a bile farm he is a gentle soul with the other bears and is very fond of standing on his hind legs and wrestling with his one remaining forearm... he is one of the many bears here who reminds me of the saying "live like it is your last day on this planet"
