The Korkeasaari zoo experienced a surprise yesterday when the bears woke up earlier than normal from their hibernation. "Usually the bears sleep until March, but this winter they woke up already in the middle of February," says the zoo's responsible bear keeper Otso Ohtonen. After waking up, the bears sniffed the fresh air for a while and then went to play in the snow. "Initially, the bears are not awake for long periods of time, but go to sleep several times a day," says Ohtonen. The bears were offered a hearty meal, as they were very hungry after a long hibernation.
