Abandoned Baby Polar Bear Sleeping With A Stuffed Animal Makes Cute Sounds

Last Friday, the Internet received an ultimate dose of cuteness when the video of a baby polar bear sleeping with her stuffed Moose was posted online by the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium in Powell, Ohio. Sadly, the cub was abandoned by her mother, so the zoo’s staff is now taking care of her.

The zoo’s press release stated that the mother was too depressed to take care of her baby after the death of her other cub. Nevertheless, the zoo’s staff is doing their best to take care of her 24/7. The cutie pie is 5 weeks old and doing very well.

“The care staff says the sound that she makes in the video is of contentment. Her motor skills are improving each day and she has started trying to stand up on all fours, especially when she’s ready for her next meal!” says the post on the zoo’s Facebook page.

I actually feel so sad that this baby has no mommy to lean on, no mommy to be groomed by... you say, it's sound from contentment ( I'm not doubting it) but i just feel so sad for this baby

I completely agree. A cub that young is looking for it's momma bear. :( Probably also to feed, which is what a lot of babies do when they want comforting.

she is so beautiful, all babies are beautiful and innocent. and this should be our focus. to save the babies of whatever species. i know, it sounds kind of sappy, but really, isn't that we are concerned about environmental health?\
