26 tons of snow!

The three bears, who are called Kalluk, Tatqiq and Chinook, clearly LOVED IT. ⛄️

According to the Zoo's video description, "Animal care staff also scattered yams, carrots, melons and beef femur bones throughout the exhibit as added enrichment, and watched as the bears pounced and dug for their prizes."

“This was a special day for the polar bears, and I could tell they really loved it,” said Susan Purtell, senior keeper at the zoo. “It was great seeing them roll around in the snow, showcasing their natural behaviors.”
