Grizzer – Modified Grizzer 500

In the past, we referenced Grizzer’s tendency to go into a playbow/invite chase behavior that the staff nicknamed the Grizzer 500.  Last week, Grizzer was stimulated by a visit from Board Member, Nancy Gibson.  After some social time with Nancy, Grizzer did a playbow and sprung up to run a lap around the enclosure.  Of course at the age of 13, the run was shorter than in the past, but the attitude was the same.   In this week’s photo, if you look closely at his back right leg, you will notice a much straighter alignment than in the past.  Grizzer willingly allowed staff to conduct some body work on his leg, similar to Luna.
