When I was 18 I got a job working for a local family run blacksmiths from Kirkintilloch, one of the early jobs I did was installing the 'runs' and wire fencing you can see in the pics from the Bear Pen. If I remember correctly, the bears were in the pen when we were working away installing these things. I was tempted to try and pat them but the handler said they would eat me in seconds! :) they looked like wee cuddly cute things too! That would be 1988/89, by the way.
