According to Ananova:

A zoo in India is serving brandy to bears to keep them warm in winter.

Authorities in state-run Chatbir zoo, in Punjab state, are offering the alcoholic drink to keep the animals warm.

“In this freezing cold, we have made the best possible arrangements to keep the bears warm,” Director of the zoo Mahender Chaudhary said. . . .

To begin with, a Himalayan black bear was given brandy. “He enjoyed it immensely but soon dozed off,” a zoo official said.
