Grizzly Bears Chew Elk Antler While Relaxing in Tub at Memphis Zoo

Two grizzly bears enjoyed a relaxing bath while chewing on an elk antler in Tennessee’s Memphis Zoo, as seen in footage released on June 7.

Video released by the Memphis Zoo shows the bears, named Cochise and Yukon, with the elk antler.

The zoo said the antler enrichment helps the bears practice their chewing. It said the antler was shed last year and was given to the bears to enjoy. Credit: Memphis Zoo via Storyful
