BAKERSFIELD, Calif (KERO) — It's not just humans having a fun time this holiday weekend, in Illinois, some of the animals at the Brookfield Zoo got patriotic treats ahead of Independence Day.

The Bottlenose dolphins got a floating flag made of sugar-free gelatin, the California sea lions and Grey Seals got "Happy 4th of July" ice and sugar-free gelatin cakes, while some brown bears savored red, white, and blue ice blocks containing carrots, sweet potatoes, bones, apples, and blueberries.
