After a hunter shot Kali’s mother for sport in Alaska, he realized the bear he had just killed was a mother and set about tracking the cub. When the hunter found Kali, he dropped him off at a police station, where he was later sent to the Alaska Zoo.
Unfortunately, although the zoo released adorable footage of Kali, it could not accommodate the little cub, who at this point was three months old and weighed 19 pounds. After taking care of him for several weeks, the zoo in Alaska arranged to send Kali to the Buffalo Zoo in New York.
Zookeepers at the Buffalo Zoo hope to put Kali in an enclosure with another polar bear cub named Luna. Kali and Luna will be slowly introduced and, if all goes well, will soon be playing together.
