    Winter snow scenes of people and zoo animals in Connecticut.

  • Description

    Titles read: "OO - ER - IT'S COLD!"

    Connecticut, United States of America.

    Several shots of a man in a bathing suit wading into an ice-covered river, intercut with footage of polar bears, deer and camels in the snow at the zoo. Two small children feed pigeons. A man carrying a shovel trudges through the snow, having broken the ice on a lake so some ducks / geese / swans can get to the water. Final shot shows the man in the bathing suit starting to swim in the river.
