Bear Fight at the Zoo!!

 This is no April Fool's joke!!
   I went with my daughter and son to take the grands to the Caldwell Zoo in Tyler, TX on Tuesday.
   I was kind of lagging behind, and I saw my daughter start running. As we were approaching the bear sanctuary, the two bears started fighting.
  We had never witnessed anything like this - LIVE! The kids went nuts too! It was sort of scary as they kept hitting the glass enclosure in the front of the pen.
 Emily took the first shot, and the I took the others. You can see one of them prancing in front of the glass. One time he slapped his tongue on the glass right in front of Shelby. She jumped a mile! He also kept spitting at the other bear - oh wow, was he mad!
 Finally, one of the zoo employees came and started talking to them through the fence, and they calmed down. Emily said she was the "bear whisperer". LOL
 We were so surprised that I totally forgot to turn on the video part of my camera.
 We had a fun day even though it was sort of chilly considering it was back in the 80's here today!
