Until very recently, everything we knew about bear hibernation could be fairly well captured in a single sentence: We're pretty sure they do it. They disappear into dens for months at a time, they emerge in the spring looking a whole lot skinnier,

Hibernation would be wonderful if we could afford to take the time off and then come out the other end svelte and raring to go. People go through cycles in seasons, but hibernation would be something altogether different. Thanks for posting.

Hibernation seems a normal and natural thing to do. When they are confined in a Zoo, nature is being tampered with.
