A bear at Minnesota Zoo scared visitors as he smashed a thick viewing glass. 

“Russia’s Grizzly Coast” exhibit attracts a lot of people as they have an opportunity to approach really close to those dangerous wild animals, who are kept in conditions, close to their natural habitat.

Nobody could predict that on Monday one grizzly bear would smash a part of viewing glass with a rock.

One of the visitors Robin Ficker, a lawyer from Maryland, decided to see what the bear would do next. He said:

The noise of the rock into the glass was so loud that it reverberated, and that is when people ran

The witness said that the bear used a rock as a tool, with the help of which he hit the window five times. Ficker also added:

The exhibit was unique in the sense that the pond came right up to you, allowing you to be within inches of bears

The incident lasted for at least 30 seconds. Even zookeepers looked terrified. When the bear stopped hitting the window, all the animals were summoned to their caves.

The incident scared all the visitors, although the zoo told another story. Kelly Lessard, a zoo representative, said that “a brown bear moved a rock from the bottom of the exhibit pool and rolled it up and along the pool’s glass barrier, eventually causing the inner pane to break.” She also claimed that no one was injured.
