Kansas City Zoo: Berlin the Polar Bear
In summer 2012, horrible flooding wrecked the Lake Superior Zoo in Duluth, Minnesota. Many animals — including six sheep, four goats, a raven, a vulture, an owl, and a donkey — were killed when more than nine inches of rain fell on the city and flooded the barnyard exhibit. Two seals and Berlin, the zoo’s polar bear, escaped their enclosures. A few months later, Berlin was moved to the Kansas City Zoo. Here she is enjoying a nap in the sunshine on a much cooler day than our last visit in August 2013.
Oh how sweet, a polar bear named Berlin ❤ She looks very cozy and relaxed.
Yep! They named her Berlin because she was born around the time that the Berlin Wall fell. I thought you’d appreciate that story! 🙂
Looks like she has made herself comfortable in her new home. Love that the polar bear is named Berlin 😉
