The first big snowfall of the season came late this year, but for the critters up at Bearizona, it was better late than never!

The bears, wolves and other furry residents of the wildlife park in Williams, Arizona have been spotted frolicking in the fresh snow.

Bearizona Wildlife Park is located in Williams, Arizona and offers both a drive-through section and walk-through area for guests to view North American animals up-close and in beautiful natural environments.

In Fort Bearizona, visitors can leisurely stroll along winding walkways through the forest for an up-close view of even more animal antics. Finally, guests are encouraged to catch the complimentary Birds of Prey free-flight show, where they will come face to face with hawks, owls and other raptors.
