CHEROKEE - The Tribal Council will revisit the contentious issue of bear zoos and a possible new bear sanctuary at a work session Wednesday. The three bear zoos on the tribal boundary, called "bear pits" by detractors who maintain the animals are poorly treated and housed on concrete floors, have garnered national attention in recent years, including a visit from game show host and animal rights activist Bob Barker.
