Rescued Polar Bear Cub Makes Debut at Alaska Zoo

A polar bear cub rescued from the North Slope last month is making a quick recovery at the Alaska Zoo. The female cub of the year was underweight and weak when she was found at the Alpine Oil Field, separated from her mother. The cub faced certain death in the wild, so the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service decided to rescue her. She’ll become an ambassador for her species at a zoo in the Lower 48. APRN’s Annie Feidt was at the zoo Wednesday for the cub’s first introduction to life in front of adoring fans.
