A FOWLMERE girl got much more than the bear necessities when she won a competition to spend a day at a wildlife park.
Eight-year-old Alice Nottage won a competition in national children's newspaper First News marking the release of new film Jungle Book 2.
She travelled to Knowsley Park Wildlife Park on Merseyside, where she met many of the inhabitants, including a snake and some elephants.
Alice's mum Liz said: "She was surprised and excited to win, and it was a fantastic experience.
"She got to hold the snake which was a bit scary at first, and she helped the keepers with mucking out the elephant enclosure.
"Her favourite animals were the sea lions. She helped to feed them and one of them gave her a big sloppy kiss at the end."
