He was found at a roadside zoo that was closing down, just a few weeks old. It was clear even then that he was a "differently-abled" bear.

As we watched him play, sweetly, innocently, not too coordinated, the name just came out - Humble Bumble said rescuers

Life scares him. Anything new scares him. Without encouragement he would rock himself endlessly in a corner. But he trusts his mentor said Earthfire Institute

Boychuk the German Shepherd. It was Boychuk who gave him the courage to go to the Wildlife Garden and play. To see the care and affection with which he plays with Boychuk, holding back his strength, adds a new dimension to one's perception of grizzly bears. Humble Bumble, is a bear of character.

Named after a passionate earth-mother wolf with a fire in her belly to protect anything vulnerable, Earthfire was founded in 2000 to develop a new model of relating to nature through the voices of the rescued wildlife under its care. A 40 acre wildlife sanctuary and retreat center, it is located on the western slope of Grand Teton National Park, near Driggs, Idaho.

    Now that is something you don't see everyday. That dog will be completely wore out. Nice to see.

    That is so nice to see. I wish I would be able to help us. And lived closer so that I could do so. Would love to volunteer.

    The intelligence of the wild kingdom is outstanding, what a beautiful sight to see such an abused animal >the bear< be so playful with a dog not even a quarter of size and strength, the gentle play they enjoy should teach some un-intelligent humans just how special animals are.
