    Can anyone tell me ;
    1) when the FIRST pit was built ?
    2) When did Dahlolhli Zoo FIRST start looking after the bears ?
    The zoo opened in 1927, so was it from the start of the zoo opening ??
    There was possibly one "bear keeper" - can anyone confirm ??

    Many thanks.

    Bib - I meant the first Bear pit in Berne itself.
