DENVER — The Animal Ark wildlife sanctuary near Reno, Nev., may have an athlete on its hands.
L.G. the black bear, which was taken to the facility after being found orphaned and freezing to death during the winter of 2010, seemed to take comfort in swatting around his toys. So his keepers decided to build him a bear-sized tetherball pole.
L.G. has since become an impressive player, as shown in a recent video.
