This was taken in a zoo in Italy, there were two bears they were in good condition. But to me there inclosure was just too small and they were used as circus animals being feed food by the passing tourists. i like the sadness in his eyes like all his wildness has gone and he's become domesticated. Whenever i look at this it makes me sad.

It makes me sad to look at this too so that makes it a great pic because it has aroused an emotion, albeit sadness.
Well done.
