Madrid zoo animals enjoy their summer popsicles

STEVE INSKEEP, HOST:

A Madrid zoo is keeping animals cool and hydrated by feeding them homemade popsicles. A giant panda is on video enjoying a watermelon popsicle, which sounds appealing, although the fish popsicles for the seals sound like more of an acquired taste. It's MORNING EDITION.
