BEAR ICE CREAM; Frozen food on a plate.

KEEPERS yesterday unveiled a cool new feeding technique to liven up meal times for their browned-off bears - frozen food.

Rupert and Mollie looked bored in their area at Blair Drummond Safari Park, near Stirling.

The pair were becoming lazy during warm weather, too used to having their food brought by staff every morning.

But now to keep the big animals on their toes, keepers have set them a chilly challenge by encasing their daily rations in ice.

Keeper Michael Lidbetter said they were trying to emulate conditions in the wild where the bears have to hunt for food themselves.

It helps force the animals into using their razor sharp teeth and powerful claws to get at their meat and fruit inside the ice.
