Just chillin’…

New public lessons for Lincoln Park Zoo’s polar bears. Makes them look harmless except for audience instructions to stay quiet and behind the rope. Very cool; pun intended!

They practice being touched, opening their mouth and doing different poses so that vets can check their health. They are behind a grid-like gate, but are able to touch the trainer.
