ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Prince Charles visited Assiniboine Park Zoo in Manitoba, Canada on Wednesday (May 21), where he had a rare opportunity to feed a polar bear. He used a pair of long metal tongs to pinch a small fish, then fed it through a metal fence to the polar bear who was awaiting the meal. When asked if it was the first polar bear he has fed, Prince Charles responded with a chuckle, saying, "I don't do it very often." The polar bear environment is part of the new Journey to Churchill exhibit that is set to open on July 3. The project includes elements of research, education and conservation, with a focus on climate change, polar bears and other species in northern Canada. Earlier in the day, Prince Charles and his wife Duchess Camilla visited Winnipeg's Stevenson Hangar for Manitoba's aerospace day.
