Qannick the polar bear celebrates 4th birthday at Louisville Zoo

Posted: Updated:
LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) - Saturday was a special day for one of the Louisville Zoo's most popular attractions.

Qannick the polar bear celebrated her fourth birthday today.

Families braved the cold temperatures to see the arctic animal up close.

"That's what the zoo is all about," said John Walczak, director of the zoo. "That's why we're here, to make those connections so people in Louisville can see these phenomenal, phenomenal species."

Qannick enjoyed a peanut butter cake and some marshmallow candles on her big day.

She was abandoned by her mom in Alaska in 2011.

The Louisville Zoo was then selected to house the polar bear cub.
