Polar bear Luna to keep her name


BUFFALO, N.Y. (WIVB) – Buffalonians love the name Luna. The Buffalo Zoo ran a contest for the public to pick the permanent name of Luna the polar bear. More than 82 percent like the name Luna, so she gets to keep it.

Other top contenders were Pearl, Bumble, Hope and Buffy. Luna is on display one hour a day from 11:30 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The zoo still needs to raise more than $3 million for Luna’s Artic Edge Home.
