ZooMontana grizzly finally makes a tentative pick

Posted: Updated:
BILLINGS, Mont. -

It took a second try but we have a selection for the big game.

ZooMontana grizzly, Ozzy, finally made his prediction for Sunday's game. He chose the New England Patriots.

You may remember on Tuesday, Ozzy didn't seem all that interested in making a pick this year. After walking up to the two cakes labeled New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, the 680 pound bear simply flipped over the table top.

ZooMontana employees say Ozzy was overwhelmed with all of the fresh snow on Tuesday and the prediction was rescheduled for Wednesday morning.

For Wednesday's attempt the two banana cakes with peanut butter frosting were placed closer to his den.

ZooMontana staff say he approached the cakes sniffed them and walked away. He came back and ultimately took a small bite out of the patriots cake.

Ozzy has been accurate three out of four times, so he has a great record.

 


Perhaps taking a similar tone to many Americans regarding Sunday's big game, Ozzy the bear at ZooMontana is not excited to make his pick for the winner.

Ozzy has been accurate three out of four times, so he has a great record. This year, however, Ozzy didn't seem too enthused.    

After walking up to the two Nutella cakes labeled New England Patriots and Atlanta Falcons, the 680-pound bear simply flipped over the table top. ZooMontana crews let the second grizzly, Bruno, come into the closure to hopefully encourage a pick. The two bears decided to play instead. Even the ZooMontana cubs wouldn't make a pick.

ZooMontana will host another grizzly game pick Wednesday morning. You can watch Ozzy attempt to make another pick at 10:20 a.m. at ZooMontana.
