Description:

The "Cage less" bear pits in Forest Park which have attracted the attention of zoological officials throughout the country are artificial rocky dens. Caves serve as a retreat for the bears and paths permit them to scale the rocks toward the top. The animals are confined, however, on the "open" side by a wide moat protected by a grassy bank, concealing a shelved arrangement underneath, which the bears cannot scale, even though they should swim the moat.
