Tripawed: This three-legged grizzly bear has been spotted at an Alaskan national park. It is not known why Tripawed is missing his front right leg although locals believe that he may have lost it in a trap set for a wolf or a lynx. BAN ALL TRAPS!
This photograph of a grizzly bear missing its right front paw was taken last summer near the entrance to Denali National Park and Preserve. The bear reappeared in the same area a few weeks ago. —Photo courtesy of National Park Service (News-Miner reporter Tim Mowry wrote a story about the bear after seeing the photograph.

Reader caption: Took me about two years to get this together since I missed the good spring shot. Finally got it last year. Taken in my mom's driveway in North Pole. Thought it'd be nice to prove we do, indeed, have seasons, and they're all very lovely. —Sarah Askew, North Pole Neat idea! I want to do this in my own familiar place one day!
