WILLIAMS, AZ (3TV/CBS5) -- A big Thanksgiving week storm dumped several inches of snow on northern Arizona, but the furry residents of Bearizona Wildlife Park did not seem to mind it one bit. Mother Nature dropped more than a foot of snow in Williams, and that meant a snow day for the animals.

Bearizona staffers sent us photos of the animals enjoying the fresh blanket of snow. The animals love to frolic in fresh snow, and most of them have furry coats to keep them warm in the chilly temps.
Bearizona is a drive-and walk-through wildlife park in Williams, Arizona. It was voted among the top three wildlife parks by the annual USA Today Readers’ Choice Awards twice in the past two years.
Bearizona is located south of the Grand Canyon near the intersection of Historic Route 66, Interstate 40 and Highway 64. The park’s mission is to rescue wild animals in need of new homes and promote conservation by fostering memorable and educational encounters with North American wildlife in natural environments.
Bearizona guests can take a scenic, three-mile drive through packs and herds of wild animals. Then comes the "walk-through" portion of the park, as visitor can check out more animal exhibits on foot. And don't miss the upcoming Wild Wonderland synchronized music and light show starting December 6. More information about Bearizona is available online and on Facebook.
