Time & Place: Bears in a box

A depressing visit to a bear attraction in North Georgia

This week's Time & Place photo was taken at 1:23 p.m. on April 21, 2013 at 8160 S. Main St. in Helen. It was taken at Black Forest Bear Park. My wife and I thought it'd be fun to see a roadside attraction in the faux Bavarian-themed town in North Georgia. But it reminded me how depressing it can be to see animals in captivity.
