ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV.com) -

If your weekend plans involve going to the St. Louis Zoo, don't plan on seeing the grizzly bears.

The zoo has shut down the brand new, multi-million dollar "Grizzly Ridge" habitat to stop the bears from digging.

Workers will install a concrete pad along the window where the bears have been digging.

The zoo hopes to reopen the enclosure by late next week.
