Detroit Zoo works to keep animals cool during heat wave

ROYAL OAK, Mich. (WXYZ) - Trainers at the Detroit Zoo are helping the animals during these steamy hot days with plenty of cool treats.

Popsicles with fish heads and fruit might not sound good to you but they were perfect for the polar bears. The children in the Arctic Ring of Life got a kick out of watching the bears dive for them.

The Snow Monkeys also had some popsicles to cool them off. They were similar to what the bears ate but much smaller and minus the fish.

Zoo officials say the health and well being of all the animals is always a priority but when the temperatures soar, they take extra steps to beat the heat.
