MADISON — The Henry Vilas Zoo in Madison welcomed a new member to their zoo family.

The newest resident, Borealis AKA 'Bo' the polar bear, arrived from the Toledo Zoo last week just in time for Wisconsin's cold weather.

Weighing in at 600lbs, Bo will be turning two years old on Dec. 9, about the age he would be leaving his mother in the wild.

Let's all give Bo a 'warm' welcome!
