Polar Bear Tears

This is a photo of Nikita, a very popular Polar Bear that currently resides at the North Carolina Zoo. He deeply enjoys swimming in his pool, rain or shine, and I like to think Nik uses his never-ending charm to implore visitors to understand the plight of his wild brothers and sisters.
