A wildlife park has been fined after forgetting to tell police they were taking their bear out for ice cream.

Discovery Wildlife Park in Alberta, Canada, drove Berkley the bear to a Dairy Queen to get ice cream.

However, the zoo’s permit requires them to alert authorities before moving animals out of the zoo.

The owners of the park were charged under the Wildlife Act, and admitted they had been “busy” and made a mistake in not telling the local government about Berkley’s trip.

The zoo’s permit has been revised to include new requirements for the zoo to ask when transporting an animal and to keep them in a cage, crate or kennel during the trip.

Members of the public are also not allowed to have any contact with animals including bears.
