St. Louis, MO (KTRS) – The St. Louis Zoo says they are getting a new polar bear. Kali –pronounced Cully– is an orphan and is being transferred to St. Louis from the Buffalo Zoo in New York.

Kali was recovered in Alaska after a hunter shot and killed Kali’s mother. The hunter followed tracks back to the den and found Kali. He wrapped her up and took her to safety on a snowmobile.

The St. Louis Zoo is in the midst of work on a new 40,000 square-foot Polar Bear Point. Work is nearly complete on the exhibit, which is scheduled to open on June 6.
