Wob­bly steps caught on cam­era

Shepparton News - - NEWS -

Sea World’s po­lar bear cub is on the move, with footage from in­side its den at the Gold Coast theme park show­ing its wob­bly first steps.

The seven-week-old cub’s strength is im­prov­ing and it has started get­ting up onto its feet to be­gin ex­plor­ing the den it shares with its mother, Liya.

The cub, whose gen­der re­mains un­known, and its twin were born on April 26, how­ever the other bear died a cou­ple of weeks later de­spite in­ter­ven­tion from Sea World staff.

The bears were the third and fourth cubs born at the park’s ex­hibit since it opened in 2000.

It is hoped the cub will be moved to a pub­lic dis­play some time in Septem­ber.
