Snow forces the zoo to shut down, but cameras catch a polar bear having time of his life

For many people, going to the zoo to see all of the beautiful animals is a fun and exciting activity. However, have you ever wondered what it’s like to be on the other side of the partition glass?

It’s rare for animals in zoos to even have a day off, let alone a vacation. The zoo is closed to guests during these rare occasions, so the animals make the most of their time. As far as we know, this is exactly what happened to the polar bear featured in the video below after the zoo in which he is currently housed was shut down due to excessive snowfall.

While the Oregon Zoo was forced to close due to a significant snowfall, the polar bear and several other arctic creatures who appreciate the cold and snow took full advantage of the opportunity. They all had a great time! Observed in this zoo employee videotape, the animals went all out and made the most of the resources available to them to play and have a good time.
