NEW YORK STATE FAIR -- One of the great free shows at the fair really bears it all. It's the Bear Mountain show and it features five live bears three times a day.

The bears perform a variety of stunts, ranging from bike riding to basketball dunking, to show off how versatile and intelligent bears really are.

It takes up to two years to train a bear do all of their tricks, but the bears' trainers say it's well worth the effort when the crowds get to see the show.

"They come, they love the animals. That's one of the biggest parts of coming and bringing the animals to a fair like this where there's so many people. We get comments after the show. There's time when they actually touch lives. People watch the relationships that we have with them," said Tepa Hall. ClientIP:, UserAgent: CCBot/2.0 ( Profile: TWCSAMLSP
