It’s summer time and that means it’s the worst time to be a polar bear in the zoo. Heatwaves around the world are making life hard for captive polar bears, and zookeepers are struggling to keep the big beasts cool.
Remember that heartwarming video from a few days ago showing a dog as it was being petted by a giant polar bear? In a twist that comes as a surprise to no one, a polar bear had to be immobilized last week after it killed and ate a dog from the same sled pack.
They might look cuddly, but polar bears are vicious predators, and when hungry, aren’t particularly choosy about what they hunt. But this polar bear, up in Churchill, Manitoba, Canada, wasn’t looking for a meal when it nuzzled up to this sled dog. It just wanted to pet its soft, fluffy fur.
Pals, we’ve got two great baby polar bears here.
It is apparently International Polar Bear Day, and you should celebrate by watching this video of a very dope polar bear discovering all the fun things he can do with the weird crap the zookeepers decided to put in his habitat.
Unlike this baby polar bear, these baby polar bears know what's up. They know that napping is way better than walking, as well as most other things.
Man, it's been a rough week, hasn't it? You could use some calm and relaxation right about now, and I suggest you take your cues from this polar bear cub.
