On March 12, an Inuit hunter shot and killed a female polar bear near Point Lay, Alaska. When he realized it was a female, he searched for the den and found a 3 – 4 month old cub.
The hunter then carried the cub to the Department of Wildlife Management who then passed the healthy cub to the Alaska Zoo who was equipped to care for the orphan.
Thankfully the cub has so far thrived under the care of keepers and veterinarians. In these heartwarming photos the cub takes on a teddy bear.
