Theme song from the Great Escape, prisoners whistling. Recaptured Steve McQueen enters Stalag Luft 3 and the commandant simply orders; "Kooler".
It was a commendable escape by any measure: Patiently wait until the staff calls it a day; dig a tunnel under a fence; then, make a dash for love.
But after 19 days on the lam, Boo, a four-and-a-half-year-old grizzly bear that made a bid for freedom after catching the whiff of a sow, is back behind his electric fence at a refuge in British Columbia.It's just the simple bear necessities of Boo's love life
Or perhaps like the journalist who wrote this I am simply anthropomorphizing the bear story. Nah, bears are people too.
The Great She Bear also reigned in the heavens. She was named in the constellation of Ursa Major which cycled then as now, around the night-time skies of the northern hemisphere each year. In Altaic, Siberian and Tibetan mythology there was said to be a direct connection between Ursa Major and the Earth via a Universal Tree, which was rooted in the earth at Shambhala. Shambhala itself is a mythical realm which lies somewhere to the north of Tibet. It is believed to be a source of the 'Ancient Wisdom'. (See 'Dawn Behind the Dawn' by Geoffrey Ashe, Henry Holt, 1992).
