Bengals Pounce on Storm Cleanup Duty at Dakota Zoo

Posted: Updated:

A group of Bengals pounces all over the leaves at the Dakota Zoo Sunday.

They're on the offensive for cleaning up from the storm.

For the 3rd straight year, the Bengals Bismarck Midget Football Team volunteers a couple of hours work at the Dakota Zoo.

It started after the Missouri River flood in 2011.

Their coach wanted his players to help clean up the zoo after it was flooded.

This year, they are helping clean up leaves and broken tree branches from the heavy snowstorm on Friday and Saturday.

Although it might look like some heavy lifting for these 5th and 6th graders, one of the players says it's all about fun and team building.

"It's fun helping out, volunteering with all of our team being here."

"We're just with our teammates getting to know each other more and it's a lot more fun." says Sean Korsmo, 5th Grade Bengal

After the cleanup, the Bengals get to check out the other Bengal tigers at the zoo and have a pizza party.
