Bear and Fish Sculpture

 Bear reaching for...

Sadly, this Bear and Fish Fountain on a busy highway outside Gravenhurst (in Muskoka) is aging...and the fountain appears to be broken.  What's a bear to do?

Hopefully they fix it like they have with my salmon fountain from a couple of days ago. I like the bear!

Ah, love the bear!!! Hope they get the fountain fixed quickly!! It is sad to see such a great one "unfixed" for any length of time!! Hope your week is going well!!

That's too bad. I guess all the fountain-fixing money went to that one in Toronto that RedPat showed a few days ago!

Sandra said...

it is still beautiful, and I hope they fix it up. to pretty to let it fall apart.

Great photo. Thanks for sharing another unique sculpture.

Kay said...

What a nice looking concept! Too bad it's fallen into disrepair. It looks worthy of better upkeep.

orvokki said...

Hopefully it will catch even one fish, that it does not die of hunger.

It's full of character and life, it's a shame it isn't being maintained.

Must be tough to be in that position forever without any fishing luck. "The one that got away…"
