Polar Bear Rejected By Mother

Quote:
One day he’ll grow up to be a fearsome predator. But for now, Siku the polar bear is quite content to enjoy life as a cosseted cub.
The tiny bear is being hand-reared at a wildlife park after his mother was unable to produce enough milk to feed him.
Footage of the month-old cub sleeping, stretching and wriggling in delight as he gets a rub down from one of his carers has won him thousands of fans online.





Siku, whose name means ‘ice’ in the Inuit language Iñupiaq, will be looked after by his three carers at the Scandinavian Wildlife Park in Denmark until he is a year old.
His online fame resembles that enjoyed by polar bear Knut, who became a celebrity at Berlin zoo after his mother rejected him in 2007.

Knut died on March 19 in front of hundreds of visitors to Berlin zoo after collapsing and falling into the water in his enclosure.
The four-year-old polar bear was suffering from encephalitis - swelling of the brain - and drowned after he fell into the pool.

Re: Polar Bear Rejected By Mother

I was just watching Planet Earth and saw polar bears on it.
But they can be nasty meat-eating suckers when they grow older.
Though in your thread title, "rejected" is misleading. Rejected would be like the mother shoving her offspring away like a reflex, but instead she just couldn't support them.

Re: Polar Bear Rejected By Mother

They are cannibalistic too, I wouldn't fancy meeting one in the wild.
