BILLINGS, Mont. — A grizzly bear at ZooMontana has picked the Denver Broncos to win Sunday's Super Bowl in a blowout over the Seattle Seahawks.

Ozzy entered the outdoor portion of his snow-covered enclosure on Thursday and went straight for two peanut butter and banana cakes.

The cakes appeared identical except for the logos of the two teams.

The 550-pound Ozzy sniffed both before devouring the cake with the Broncos logo, then turned away and left the cake with the Seahawks logo uneaten.

ZooMontana Executive Director Jeff Ewelt tells the Billings Gazette (http://bit.ly/1iZfxeG) that Ozzy's decision not to eat the second cake is a sign the game will be a blowout.

Last year Ozzy correctly picked the Baltimore Ravens to beat the San Francisco 49ers. But he ate both cakes that year.
