On the Bronx Zoo website, this video is called “A Bear Halloween.” The zoo says, “To the Bronx Zoo’s brown bears, pumpkins are for eating and batting around, not decorating or carving.” As you can see.
Are Glacier, Kootz, Denali and Sitka (pretty sure those are their names, though we weren’t able to reach anyone at the zoo — but they’re listed here. Though, they all look the same so who knows if that’s even all four of them?) aware that Hurricane Irene is causing a pumpkin shortage this year? Leaving that aside, this is adorable, though we wouldn’t want to be one of those pumpkins.
