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.
