SAINT-FÉLICIEN, QC /CNW Telbec/ – Milak, a 6-year-old female polar bear and television and social media star in her country, as well as in 74 others, is permanently settling down at Zoo sauvage de Saint-Félicien. She is coming to us directly from Denmark.
Milak’s admirers on social media stated that they couldn’t wait for the quarantine period to end in order to reconnect with her.
Dr. Josée Tremblay, Zoo sauvage de Saint-Félicien’s veterinarian, made the trip to the Aalborg Zoo in order to ensure Milak’s well-being during each step of her transfer to Canada: “I was very warmly welcomed by my Danish colleagues.”Henrik Vesterskov Johansen, Director of the Aalborg Zoo is satisfied, albeit sad to see her go: “I am certain that she will be happy in her new Canadian habitat”.
Zoo sauvage General Manager Lauraine Gagnon concludes: “It is a superb acquisition that allows our organization to affirm its presence and expertise in an even more significant and responsible manner… We can’t wait to introduce her to our other two bears”.
