SALT LAKE CITY — Fans of the Hogle Zoo will be glad to learn that Hope the polar bear is now a resident of the Brookfield Zoo in Chicago. Polar bears are often moved to new zoo locations for breeding purposes, which was the case for Hope and her move to the Midwest.

Hope had a lot of fans in Utah, but you can see her in her new home at the Great Bear Wilderness habitat at the Brookfield Zoo in these photos sent by the Chicago Zoological Society.
