The highlight of the event was a gorgeous frozen Bear-thday cake that we gave to the bears to devour - it even included veterinarian approved whipping cream! When we let Grinder and Coola back into their upper pond habitat, they both quickly found the cake and started licking up the whip cream. Once the whip cream was largely gone, they started in on the ice layers which contained berries, nuts, fish and other tasty bear treats!
Finally, since it was taking too long to thaw or gnaw through, Coola decided to roll his piece into the pond and have the water help him melt out the goodies!
Overall it looked like a hit - even if it wasn't so much of a smash but many many licks!
We can't wait to celebrate their 23rd Bear-thday next summer!
