Grizzly bear pair ready to leave Cleveland Metroparks Zoo for new home at Akron Zoo's Grizzly Ridge

CLEVELAND - Two of four orphaned grizzlies, Cheyenne and Jackson, are ready to move from the Cleveland Metroparks Zoo to their new home at the Akron Zoo's Grizzly Ridge.

In the summer of 2011, two grizzly brothers were brought to Cleveland from Montana and a brother and sister from Wyoming.

The brother bears were intended to stay in Cleveland, but the plan had always been the other two would call the Akron Zoo home when the bear exhibit was finished.

An exact moving date to their $7.7 million home hasn't been set, but Wednesday morning is the last day the bears will be able to be seen on exhibit in Cleveland.

You can come and say goodbye to the bear siblings at 10:30 a.m.
