Bear at MN Zoo smashes window, doesn’t escape

You’ve got to like a bear with spunk.

One of the three bears (insert obvious joke here) in the Minnesota Zoo’s “Russia’s Grizzly Coast” exhibit picked up a rock and repeatedly slammed it against a window pane until it cracked, the Star Tribune reports.

Robin Ficker, who was visiting from Maryland, said the bears were wrestling a little after 9 a.m. when one of them picked up the rock and went all grizzly.


No one was hurt. The exhibit was closed.

The perpetrator was identified as Kenai.

“He didn’t know what he was doing. He was just being a bear,” the zoo’s animal collections manager, Tony Fisher, told the paper.
