Traffic problem?

Gosha the polar bear looks like he's stuck in a traffic cone, but he's clowning around. He swiped the bright orange traffic cone that was placed in his enclosure in Priamursky Zoo, Russia, last week. Zoo keepers were amused when 21-year-old Gosha decided to plant the cone on his head, but it wasn't long before he managed to get the cone stuck on his face. Zoo director Elena Aseidulina, 34, said "Gosha is such an inquisitive bear; it's lovely watching him play with whatever he can get his paws on."
