March 2, 2012: We've scoured the Web to find the best and most compelling animal stories, videos and photos. And it's all right here.
A couple vacationing in Alaska said that a grizzly bear got a little too close during a four-hour photo safari. “We were paralyzed,” said Larry Griffith. “The bear was so close we could hear it breathing.” But Griffith kept his camera rolling, even as the bear wandered away and came back charging at them. Luckily, the bear eventually lost interest and retreated into the woods. — Watch it at Today

Buddy’s voter registration card showed up two weeks later. “Somebody should have verified this information,” said Tolbert. Although he didn’t plan to use the card, he may still face the consequences — Tolbert is being investigated for voter fraud. — Read it at the Huffington Post
