The Discovery Wildlife Park in Canada has been fined after taking one of its bears out for ice cream. Wildlife authorities have charged the zoo for not notifying them about the recent outing, which involved taking the zoo’s one-year-old bear to Dairy Queen for some vanilla ice cream. The zoo had posted a video of the trip on their Facebook, showing the bear heading through the drive-thru window. In a video, the Dairy Queen employee can be seen feeding the bear a vanilla cone. Alberta Fish and Wildlife notes they aren’t mad about the bear going out for a treat, just that they weren’t notified about it. The park has since pulled the video from Facebook and apologized. Zoo owners Doug Bos and Debbie Rowland have been cited for violating the terms of license. Bos says they plan to plead guilty and are happy the authorities enforced the rule as it shows just how strict they are on zoo licenses.
