There's been a change of plans for the temporary relocation of Como Zoo's polar bears. This link gives the full details of where they'll spend the next couple years while their pen gets an extreme makeover. We reported here last month that they'd be going to Buffalo, but that just didn't work out. You know how polar bears can be.

When are the 'boys' at Como Zoo heading to Detroit? I don't want to miss seeing them before they leave for two years.

We were just at Como and so sad that the polar bears were not there, but we were ecstatic to hear of their new crib to come. We love Como Zoo and all the renovations have been worth the wait. Thank you to all who contrbute!!

I believe that the just completed legislative session acted to pump a bunch of money into this project as well. Earlier in the session Gov. Pawlenty had veteoed the funding, but it came through. I just can't put my finger on all the details right now.
