The Miller Park Zoo in Bloomington will hold on of their two animal enrichment days this weekend.

Jay Tetzloff is the Miller Park Zoo Superintendent and he explains this was something he began six years ago when he arrived at the zoo. He indicates the idea is to engage the animals in their natural behaviors.

The Zoo's winter enrichment day traditionally falls close to their sun bear's birthday. Tetzloff says their bear, named Candy, is the second oldest sun bear in the world.

The Zoo also hopes to be more interactive with kids who come this weekend and give them an idea of what it is like for animals to build habitat or find food.

The event is Saturday afternoon from 1 pm to 3 pm.
