While I personally cannot get my head round captive animals such as this trained to perform for money, Jim - There is no denying this is a beautiful species and you have taken an excellent photo!

A beartiful animal- and a lovely capture. I wonder why it cannot be free...

A wonderful image Jim, love the winter mountain habitat.

What size area do they have to roam in Montana?

Gorgeous animal with a splendid attitude, I love the expression in his eye.

Beautiful image - he probably has a carefree life with good meals everyday and a (hopefully) nice place to live. Looks very healthy.
