We've had a lot of zoo posts lately in the Buzz. There's more happening at Como Zoo this weekend as Saturday marks the final day for polar bears Neil and Buzz to roam their small enclosure for a couple years. While it's getting an extreme makeover, they'll be hanging out with other polar bears in Buffalo, N.Y. Apparently global warming has nothing to do with this polar bear disappearance.

So how do you move a polar bear? I don't suppose you could teach them the Shuffle off to Buffalo. I could never learn it.

But the article explains they will make the move in a refrigerated truck with out stopping once over the 930 mile journey. I guess I can add specialty polar bear mover to my list of cool jobs I'd like to have.

I've seen him push off the viewing area glass with those paws while he's swimming and they're at least, if not bigger, than a canned ham!
