Video shows animal being hand-fed through the drive-thru window

An Alberta zoon has been fined following a video of a captive bear eating ice cream off a spoon at a Dairy Queen.

A central Alberta zoo must pay $500 in fines after taking a bear for ice cream at a drive-thru.

A video posted on social media in January by Discovery Wildlife Park in Innisfail, Alta., showed a one-year-old captive bear named Berkley leaning out a truck's window and being hand-fed ice cream by the owner of the local Dairy Queen.

Officials with the province investigated and charged the zoo with two counts of violating a licence or permit under the Wildlife Act.

One count stems from the bear being taken for ice cream, while the other relates to an employee who brought an orphaned bear cub home to foster in 2017.

The zoo's owners pleaded guilty and the business was fined $250 for each of the charges.

Co-owner Doug Bos told court they were embarrassed about the charges, but he thanked Alberta Fish and Wildlife for doing its job.
