Delighted Animals Gleefully Play in the Snow While the Oregon Zoo is Closed Due to Winter Weather

A severe heavy winter storm in Portland caused the Oregon Zoo to temporarily close their doors to the public. The weather, however, did not bother Nora the polar bear, Samudra the elephant, vocal harbor seals, playfuls sea otters and other animals one bit as they gleefully enjoyed the frigid air and the soft, fluffy piles of snow in which to roll around and play.
