Although stated as an attraction in the guides. I think the Bear Pit is quite a miserable sight. At first it is quite exciting to see the bears, however, after a couple of minutes, one would feel sorry for them because they are being kept in a small pit that is about 5 meters deep. Bears being animal that need large places to roam about, the pit is obviously too small for them to find enough things to do. Some miserable toys hung from broken tree to keep them occupied, added to the state of pity.
