Ucumari reports that NC Zoo polar bear Willy (or Willie or Wilhem; he goes by all three) has turned 27. Here, she offers a photo (ignore the flickr claim that I am the photographer) of the birthday cake Zoo volunteers enjoyed yesterday. (Volunteer Loretta Lutman saved a piece for me!)
Willy's in Milwaukee for his big day this year.
