Roadside America spent some time in and around Henry's big cage at the Little Pine Truck Stop. Hugh, who rescued Henry as a cub, used to let thousands of visitors get up close to the 800-lb. bear, feeding him with apple slices in their mouths. Now, though, Henry has gotten more protective of Hugh, so he limits the apple slice trick to himself and his wife Skeeter.
Still, Henry by nature seems gentle, as Hugh tells us about the bear's bird buddy.
