Klondike and Snow

Written for Friday Fictioneers.

The main viewing area across from the Polar Bear exhibit was sparsely crowed. A light snow was falling in memory of the twin polar bears.

Born on November 6, 1994 the twins were born to Ulu, a first time mother, who rejected them. Furry little puffs of white and black. They became an instant hit with both young and old.

Fed by human hands they thrived and lived.  In adulthood one went to San Diego and the other to Tucson.

Books and movies of their lives made the little children cry.

Klondike and Snow. Both now encased in their own snow chateau.


  1. Great story with a lot of food for thought. Zoos do a lot for endangered species these days, they might be the only places where polar bears (and many other species) survive if things keep going as they are.
