ANCHORAGE — You thought Barack and Mitt were fierce presidential candidates? Try Ahpun the polar bear and Denali the wolf.
The Alaska Zoo, in what it acknowledges is shameless promotion and fundraising ploy, is conducting an election between Ahpun (ah-POON’) and Denali. The winner will claim zoo presidency, according to development director Eileen Floyd, who introduced the candidates Wednesday.
The election is about who will best represent the Alaska Zoo for the next four years, she said.
