Polar Bear, Flocke Has A New Friend

Wednesday, 21 January 2009 21:58 by Tamara
Celebrity polar bear Flocke has a new companion, the AP reports. The Nuremberg Zoo's resident superstar was a little tense upon meeting the unnamed 1-year-old Russian polar bear, but the two soon teamed up for some joyous romping. The new bear arrived from Moscow in late December and will remain in Nuremberg for about a year.

After the Russian bear’s stint, he’s off to a new home in Madrid. Zookeepers said they were pleased with Flocke’s very polar bear-like behavior; she, like Germany’s other star bear Knut, was raised by humans after her mother rejected her. But her quick socialization with the transplant shows she hasn’t lost her ursine essence.

The World's Favorite Polar Bear Leaves

Friday, 12 December 2008 21:45 by Tamara

(Newser) – The world's favorite polar bear may be bidding auf wiedersehen to the Berlin Zoo. Cuddly tourist attraction Knut actually belongs to the north German zoo his father came from, and a move is expected in the first half of 2009. "We entered into a contract which stated that the first surviving cub is owned by Neumuenster Zoo," said the Berlin Zoo's director. But Berlin officials want to keep Knut—and the extra $6.3 million he pulled in last year, the BBC reports.
