Polar Bear Cub Stuns Experts After Wandering 450 Miles South All By Herself



There are only 20,000 polar bears left in the world, and they’re by far the most studied bear on the planet. Interestingly, these bears migrate like birds: during the colder months, they head south, and in the warmer months, they pack up and head north.

Recently, though, wildlife experts found one particular polar bear cub far away from her home, and they were left scratching their heads. Just how, exactly, had she made such a distant, perilous journey all by herself? As the experts dug deeper, however, they found that her unusual travels included some unique characters!

See just what this one little polar bear’s journey entailed—and how, in the future, many more might have to make their own journeys just like her…

    Watched till @5:20. Seems to me this bear is likely orphaned. I think Russian authorities made a bad call, putting her in a zoo. She probably like many who will follow, are starting to take the evolutionary steps to the shifting climate. She may or may not have made it to where food would be easier to get, (farther south). Wolves might very likely have killed her. But she MIGHT have made it too. But man interfered. Now one less of her species will thrive in the wild at a critical point. SAD.

    great, she goes 450 miles, and she ends up in a zoo?? she deserves better, i mean, she had so much freedom, and going from having the entire world and forests all to your self, and then waking up one day surrounded by cement and green water??

    Sad! But at the end she was safe at least. But a Sanctuary would be much better!

    That zoo looks so sad. This whole story is a sign of what we have to look forward to in the future. As ice melts, the bears will look for food further south. Breaks my heart.

    She made it so far, looked so good, great appetite, IKNOW lets put her in a zoo and then have someone put a good spin on it…. and umm polar bears are WAY bigger then fucking blacks… and would do just fine.

  6. Bob Poaster October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    …. the zoo… wow.. great excuse assholes

    when samoyed drink too much cola, he became pola bear!

    Poor baby. They had to be a better option. She was nine months still plenty of time to teach her how to survive and release her back where she belonged. Pity she's going to live such a short, lonely and depressing life. I hope this video reaches the right people and something can be done before it's too late.

    When did this really happen? Was she eventually taken to a sanctuary? If not, why not?

  10. Anthony Caldeira October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    This is so fucking sad and is is what the future holds for all Polaris —- /sad and unhappy left alone

  11. Deciphor Maniac October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    I like the story, but how does solitary incarceration helps? We are ppl, not polar bears.

  12. Lisa Jones October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    That’s not right look how ugly that zoo is it’s not right they should of tried to find out her mother

  13. jan wells October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    You dumb MF she made it without you, I am sure she would be ok on her own. So sick of the gov BS more lies to cover your @$$.

  14. Sharon Marmon Kaczorowski October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    And she survived because people fed her…she wasn’t feeding herself. Without her Mom she would be very unlikely to learn to hunt.

  15. Sharon Marmon Kaczorowski October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    Sanctuaries are very full, sadly. That’s the big problem…finding somewhere with a space for an animal. I would think they could have choppered her back to the coast. Note that people fed her along the way….

    PLACE THIS BEAR IN A WILD LIFE SANCTUARY—WHY ZOO??TO MAKE MONEY OFF HER BY PATRONS ENTERING ZOO TO GAWK AR HER. IT'S BETTER TO RELEASE HER IN HER HABITAT AFTER A SANCTUARY REHAB.

  17. SuperGirl1970 Carver October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    some polar bear has mated with brown bears to make a combinations of the two bears into one. I'm beginning to see the extinction of another species due to human fault.

  18. Petra Nyman October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    Why the hell didnt they drive her to the coast instead of putting her in a zoo!!?? Egoistic assholes

  19. Helen Cline October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    I think she was better off in the wild return her to her natural home❣️

  20. MIA purplefrog October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    She made it that far ?

  21. Minxx Mee October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    Poor babe

  22. Keshi Caunhye October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    Yuck …. that zoo is not worth to visit

  23. Keshi Caunhye October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    Maybe her mother had abandoned her

  24. Rose Madder October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    My god they put her in a ZOO! 😞 they couldn’t take her back to the wild and put even a tracking device on her to watch her and see if she can fend for herself?! She may have surprised them and lived by her bear instincts.! Additionally, they could of given her the chance to remain free and monitor her to make sure she wasn’t starving. If that was the case then they could act and send her to a sanctuary not a flipping zoo!

  25. sirkittenpaws October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    Istg they have better put her in a top notch zoo. Honestly this makes me mad. I'm sure they're better places for her. They may not be in Russia but she deserved somewhere better

  26. Gabriel Caballes October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    Fucking zoo

  27. Gothnymph13 October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    Some humans don't know when to leave creatures alone and mind it's own business. 😕

  28. Victoria Johnson October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    She made it all by herself. Survived just fine before sticking her in a crappy enclosure.

  29. Wild simmer October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    ITS KALLIK FROM SEEKERS

  30. Karen Burrell October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    Oh, that's so sad! I understand why the people did what they did considering her options. I hope she's looked after well.

  31. Mr. Groovy 2 Shoes October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    Something had to have happened to the mother bear .They will fight to the death to protect their cubs.Too bad she was being fed by humans and was playing with a dog because it signed its death warrant.If they would have let nature take it's course it would have been mauled by a big black bear or it would have been shot by people before it made it to 1yr old.A cub stays with the mother for a couple years and teaches it everything it needs to survive including staying the hell away people.These people were in a no win situation.Half the people are mad they interfered with nature and the other half is mad that they didn't.

  32. Aztec R October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    She is beautiful, Im sure humans are the reason why she was so far from home. Its so annoying how humanity is a pest and all animals are paying the price. Biggest positive impact people can do is become vegan n not reproduce.

  33. K Derby October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    There were only about 9000 polar bears a few years ago and the ice packs are growing now so there will be 40000 in a few yrs. Global warming is a hoax. We have cold winters and hot winters. Always have, always will. Nice they took care of that bear though.

  34. R. McBride October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    That "zoo" looks disgusting and primitive – fate worse than death. The poor thing!

  35. Cam Alft October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    the matrix glitches in your videos are really irritating as hell…………

  36. Glen October 26, 2017 at 3:02 am

    I'm not liking the looks of that zoo. Maybe the WWF can find a way to get her to a better habitat.
