Riverbanks Zoo Grizzlies Being Relocated

Columbia, SC (WLTX) - The Riverbanks Zoo's two grizzlies will migrate to another part of the country--but just for a little while.

Butch and Sundance, as they're known, will be moved to the Tulsa, Oklahoma zoo. The move is only temporary while crews work to complete a new grizzly bear and otter habitat at Riverbanks.

The Bears will leave toward the end of the month and be gone about a year.

The new habitat is expected to be complete next spring. It's part of a $32 million parkwide expansion and development project.
