Canadian zoo faces charges after taking bear out for ice cream . A video of an Alberta zoo taking a bear through a Dairy Queen drive thru for a nice ice cream cone has prompted the government to investigate.

In a statement posted on social media, the park said: "The conclusion of the investigation has resulted in us being charged under section 12(3) of the Wildlife Act.

"What we failed to do under this section was to notify Fish & Wildlife ahead of time that we were taking Berkley off-site.

"We have been in operation for over 28 years and this is the first time that we have failed to notify Fish & Wildlife before taking an animal off-site. The Alberta Zoo Standards fall under the Wildlife Act and are very strict and regulated.

"We appreciate that Fish & Wildlife follow these high standards to ensure the best care and well-being of the animals in our care.

"We will pay our fine and have already instituted changes to our protocols and put them into practice to ensure that these notifications are done every time without fail."

The zoo's permit is understood to have 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.
