Description : (April 2003) One day he could weigh as much as a car. But the tiny polar bear cub rescued by a Toronto zoo after native hunters killed his mother will have to lap up a lot baby bear formula and a special meat diet first.
The snow white cub made headlines in Canada after he spent the night in jail in the tiny town of Fort Severn on Hudson,s Bay, the only safe place to keep him in the Cree community before he was put on plane heading south and to a lifetime of captivity. The alternative was almost certain death. He was only a few months old, and dependent on his mother for milk.
