There’s something not quite right when a polar bear seems happier in Kansas City than the Northland of Minnesota.
The Kansas City Zoo sent this picture out yesterday of Berlin the polar bear rolling in the new snow in Kansas City, apparently not missing us at all.
The zoo is closed today because of all of the snow, but they’ve set up a webcam to watch our bear think the world there is way better than the floodwaters that drove her out of the Lake Superior Zoo last summer.
Berlin the Bear was sent to Kansas City in December to mate with Nikita, but at the moment, she’s too infatuated with the snow to bother with love.
