Saskatoon zoo’s grizzlies wake from hibernation for 1st time


It’s a sure sign of spring. Mistaya and Koda, the grizzly bears at the Saskatoon Forestry Farm Park and Zoo emerged Friday from hibernation for the first time.

“On Friday, the bears let us know. They got to the doors of the den and gave them a good ol’ shake to let us know that they wanted to go out,” zoo manager Tim Sinclair-Smith said on Sunday.
