One Week Later, Patrons Return To Downtown Bars & Restaurants

BUFFALO, N.Y. - Exactly one week after a gunman shot eight people outside of the City Grill, many patrons returned to Downtown Buffalo's bars and restaurants undaunted by the violence.

"I believe in this city," said bride-to-be Cameron Stelmach, as she held rehearsal dinner at the City Grill. "I bought a house in this city. I'm having my wedding in this city. And so I want more people to see the good side of this city."

While it may take weeks, if not longer, to get a true sense of how the murder of four partygoers might affect business for bar and restaurant owners, many of the Friday club goers sounded determined not to let the violence affect their lives.

REPORTER: Does it concern you at all that there was some violence down here?

STELMACH: It doesn't really concern me that it was down here. I really think that was a random act of violence. I don't think it reflects the neighborhood at all.

Buffalo Zoo Snow Leopard Cubs Now on Exhibit

BUFFALO, NY-Cute as can be, two snow leopard cubs made their public debut Friday at the Buffalo Zoo.

The pair, both males, are named Ketu and Makalu, after mountains in the Himalayas. They were born to mom, Annapurna and dad, Dwaine on June 2nd.

The breeding was recommended as part of the Association of Zoos and Aquariums' Species Survival Plan, which is designed to help a species maintain a healthy and stable population.

Annapurna, a first-time mom, was the last snow leopard born at the zoo.

Snow leopards are highly endangered due to poaching for the fur trade, loss of habitat, dam projects and a loss of food sources.
