Riverbanks Zoo is located in Columbia, South Carolina. They announced in a Facebook post some of the best parts of the famous grizzly. Sundance, known as the sunshine bear, had kind eyes and enjoyed interacting with its keepers. From wrestling with his brother Butch to catching a great nap for all visitors to see. No announcements about new bear additions have been made and the park is continuing to honor its grizzly bear by sharing memories of the famous grizzly.
