Ahhh! Polar Bear Falls for Snow
Pike the polar bear turns 30 with a belly flop on ice
What does a polar bear want for her birthday? Ten tons of snow would be nice!
That’s what the polar bear ordered, and that’s what she got. Piké, who turned 30 years old last week, enjoyed a whole lot of fresh powder at the San Francisco Zoo, which hauled in the snow to celebrate Piké and her polar bear pal Ulu, who turned 32.
Piké and Ulu are two of the oldest bears in accredited zoos in the U.S.; clearly, they’ve earned their day in the snow.
That wasn’t the only treat the two birthday bears got: Two players from the San Francisco Bulls hockey team, Hans Benson and Chris Frank, stopped by to shoot “pucks” made of icy fish into the bears’ enclosure.
