ZooMontana Grizzly Bear to Predict Super Bowl 51

Ozzy the Grizzly Bear Looks to go 4-1 With Predictions

BILLINGS, MT - ZooMontana Grizzly Bear, Ozzy, is looking to better his record.  The 680 pound bear has become a national sensation after methodically attempting to choose the year’s Super Bowl champion 3 years straight.  During his young career, Ozzy has chosen correctly 3 out of 4 times, missing only once, when he mistakenly chose the Denver Broncos to win Super Bowl XLVIII.  Last year, the lumbering grizzly went back to his favorite and picked the Denver Broncos to win over the Carolina Panthers.  The Broncos ended up winning after a “grizzly” performance by the Panthers.  Ozzy is looking to solidify his record on Tuesday, January 31st at 10:20 am when he predicts this year’s champion in a joint effort between ZooMontana and Billings radio station 98.5, The Wolf.  All media is invited to attend the prediction.

Two banana cakes frosted with peanut butter and decorated with team logos will be placed within the bear habitat.  Ozzy will later enter the yard, choosing one cake over the other.  The cake that is eaten first will be this year’s projected Super Bowl winner.  Each cake will be identical, ensuring no favoritism.  Bruno, ZooMontana’s largest bear, will sleep through the entire event.  Zookeepers will make Bruno a separate cake, guaranteeing him a special treat all to himself.

All media is invited to ZooMontana for the event.  Please meet at the Bear exhibit on Tuesday, January 31st at 10:00 am SHARPThe prediction will take place at 10:20am SHARP.  The general public is invited to watch the pick either in person (Zoo admission applies, FREE for members) or live via the Underriner Motors BearCam found at http://www.zoomontana.org/plan-your-visit/bear-cam/.  For more information, please call ZooMontana at (406) 652-8100 or email lyucha@zoomontana.org.
