Elephants and sloth bears feast on leftover Christmas trees

Elephants and sloth bears at Berlin Zoo got a festive treat on Thursday when they were given leftover Christmas trees to feast on. Feeding unsold pine trees to the animals has become an annual event across the country. The trees will be served to bears, guanacos and elephants. Zookeeper Philine Hachmeister explained that it was an old tradition. She stated that the animals received only... Еще uncultivated trees: «there are no chemicals in them, no substances against insects.» Hachmeister said that the bears had gotten the Christmas trees for the first time and for them «it is some entertainment, new smells and new taste.»
