Mugging the camera

Kali the polar bear gets up close and personal to a viewing window at the Buffalo Zoo on a sunny  afternoon. Kali, originally from Anchorage, Alaska, is expected to remain at the Buffalo Zoo alongside fellow polar bear cub Luna as the zoo proceeds with construction of the $14 million Arctic Edge exhibit, which broke ground in February. The project received $750,000 from New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s NY Works program to complete the funding. The construction of the exhibit will ensure that Luna will stay at the Buffalo Zoo. Kali also could remain a permanent resident pending approval from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, expected in Spring 2015. By Jeff Pawlak and Brittney Singletary
