The Bored Bears of Tat Kuang Si

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Ryan Friese

The Tat Kuang Si Rescue Centre, located approximately 30 km south of Luang Prabang, Laos, is home to these two Asiatic brown bears. It was very funny witnessing these magnificent, powerful creatures slump over wooden posts during a particularly hot and humid day in monsoon season. I still wonder what exactly they were doing or thinking!

Location: Near Luang Prabang, Laos
