Polar Bear Cub Charms Web

A polar bear cub born at Scandinavian Wildlife Park is being taken care of by animal keepers, because they said the mother was not producing her own milk for some reason. If they had not intervened, the polar bear cub would have died they explained on their website.

A YouTube video of the cub has over one million views and counting.

Over 4,000 people have liked the clip, with 48 disliking, though it isn’t clear why someone would choose that option. Maybe it was Sarah Palin and crew because they can’t stand to see a polar bear getting such a positive response? Or because they object to the reality of climate change, and they would deny its impact on polar bears and their habitat – who knows exactly, but this polar bear cub looks healthy and that is all that matters right now.

For the future though, Scandinavian Wildlife Park is planning to develop a climate change educational program based around Siku the polar bear cub as a sort of ambassador for polar bears in the wild. The park wants to have a polar bear captive breeding program, and this might be necessary if the wild polar bear populations are continuously killed off by climate change.

beautiful creature but sad that he had to be taken from mum. I guess some would not approve of any intervention and interference, maybe thats why there were some 'dislikes' The whole thing is a bit contraversial really. We are responsible for destroying everything including this poor mites real home then we "rescue" them from extinction and expect applause. It's all rather sad.
