WILLIAMS, Ariz. -- Snow fell in northern Arizona Thursday and one resident at Bearizona Wildlife Park seemed especially happy about it.

Currently, only a few of the females at Bearizona are hibernating. The majority of the bears will stay out until the park closes for the season on Jan. 1, according to Jocelyn Monteverde, operations manager at Bearizona.
