Evening Telegraph (First Edition) - - Front Page -

THE first po­lar bear to be born in the UK for 25 years is a boy, the Royal Zoo­log­i­cal So­ci­ety Scot­land has said.

Staff at the char­ity’s High­land Wildlife Park dis­cov­ered the four-month-old cub is male dur­ing his first rou­tine health check.

Una Richard­son, head keeper re­spon­si­ble for car­ni­vores, at Kin­craig near Kin­gussie, said: “It was very ex­cit­ing to find out we have a lit­tle boy.

“Next we need to give him a name and our keep­ers are com­ing up with a suit­able list which we will soon ask the pub­lic to choose from on so­cial me­dia.”
