I’ve never really been in favor of feeding wildlife (other than backyard birds), but I have to admit watching beer feeding time at Grandfather Mountain off the Blue Ridge Parkway in North Carolina near Linville is nothing short of a hoot. This International Biosphere Reserve’s wildlife habitat is actually first-rate, nothing like your typical zoo. The bears are a bit tubby, however. Good luck finding a black bear this burly in the wild! See more of Grandfather Mountain at www.grandfathermountain.com.
