LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A fitting birthday celebration, on some of the coldest days of the year so far, for a polar bear at the Louisville Zoo.

The Zoo staff will celebrate Qannik's fourth birthday Saturday morning at Glacier Run.

Qannik will enjoy a peanut butter cake while attendees get the change to sing Happy Birthday.

Qannik made national headlines when she was found on Alaska's North Slope in 2011, separated from her mother and sibling.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service later assigned her to the Louisville Zoo.

She was transported to Louisville from Alaska via a UPS plane in a mission dubbed 'Operation Snowflake.'
