BUFFALO, NY (WIVB) - Luna and Kali, the star attraction polar bear cubs, are temporarily going off view while the Buffalo Zoo prepares to move them to larger quarters.
The bears will be temporarily off exhibit starting Thursday, September 19 for a period of about a week.
Zoo officials say it will take the cubs a while to adjust to their new holding area. When they go back on exhibit you'll be able to see them in the Zoo's current tiger exhibit area. The tigers are nocturnal animals and the zoo will move the bears in the space during the day and the tigers will take over the space at night.
If you want to check to see if your favorite animal is on exhibit, you can always call the Buffalo Zoo before visiting at (716 837-3900.
