There have been a lot of bear sightings recently in the Akron area. Soon, there will be a whole lot more at the Akron Zoo.
Grizzly Bears Jackson and Cheyenne have made the move from Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to the Akron Zoo. They will be on display in the new Mike and Mary Stark Grizzly Ridge.
The two year old, 300 pound bears are originally from Wyoming. They were brought to the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo in 2011 to be cared for until Akron's exhibit was built.
Except for the photos provided by the zoo, you can't see the bears quite yet. Jackson and Cheyenne will take the next several weeks getting used to their new home before Grizzly Ridge's grand opening on July 20.
