CINCINNATI, OH (FOX19) -

Grin and Berit.

If you haven't heard, Berit the polar bear and her friend Little One breached their containment area at the Cincinnati Zoo on Wednesday. The Zoo was closed for several hours after the bears wandered into a back hallway behind the exhibit area.

Berit's big day off consisted of her not making one, but TWO Twitter accounts. The accounts showcased where she went throughout the day as the Zoo was closed. 

Her firs stop on her day off was at Holtman's Donuts.


Berit wasn't done eating but she was disappointed to find that Skyline was out of her favorite food. 

FOX19 NOW's own Ben Katko was able to chat with the polar bear briefly and we learned that Berit is a Xavier fan. Maybe she was trying to get to St. Louis to watch the Muskies?

Her day had bear-ly begun when it was time to go back into hibernation mode.
