LOUISVILLE, Ky. -- The Louisville Zoo says it will soon have a second polar bear cub.
A 2-year-old bear named Siku will arrive from the Toledo Zoo in early fall, according to Louisville Zoo spokesman Kyle Shepherd. Siku, whose name means ice, will join another polar bear cub named Qannik, who was rescued from an oil field in Alaska, and Arki, an adult female polar bear.
The zoo says Siku will be added to the exhibit rotation after a standard 30-day quarantine.
The polar bears will live in the Glacier Run exhibit, which opened earlier this year and also houses a family of grizzly bears.
