Hoping these bears get along

PITTSBURGH (AP) - December 16, 2011

Kobe is Koda's new gal pal.

She was brought to the zoo from Arizona to make some polar bear whoopie with Koda.

Zoo keepers say the 7-year-olds are in their prime mating years.

The polar bears are being given a chance to get to know each other.

The animals are being kept in side-by-side rooms for now.

But zoo officials tell KDKA-TV the bears will eventually be allowed to get together.
