LOUISVILLE, KY (WAVE) - For the second Saturday in a row the Louisville Zoo celebrated an animal's birthday.

Last week it was Helen the gorilla's 58th birthday. This Saturday it was Qannik the polar bear's fifth birthday.

Qannik came to the zoo after she was found, separated from her mother and siblings, on Alaska's North Slope in 2011.

She celebrated her birthday with peanut butter cake and ice fish popsicles.
