Lincoln Park Zoo Sequestered Polar Bear

Lincoln Park Zoo Keeps Polar Bear Indoors During Frigid Weather

It's officially cold. Chicago's Lincoln Park Zoo has sequestered its polar bear, Anana, to a climate-controlled area due to crazy-cold polar vortex temperatures. According to zoo spokeswoman Sharon Dewar, Anana "doesn't typically enjoy the very cold much," and "few of us are accustomed to this cold."

Um, yes.

With temperatures swirling below 0˚F and wind gusts clocking in at -40˚F, no one should really be outdoors at all — even polar bears! In the wild, the big white beasts boast a layer of up to five inches of blubber, which isn't even enough to keep Anana warm during this Winter storm.

Until the frigid temperatures regulate back to Chicago's Winter balmy average of 20˚F, click to watch this quick clip of Anana enjoying some fresh snow during warmer weather.
