‘Cone­head’ po­lar bear cub sees red af­ter get­ting stuck

Evening Times - - NEWS -

THE first po­lar bear born in the UK in 25 years has been get­ting to grips with its en­vi­ron­ment - in­clud­ing get­ting a traf­fic cone off of its head.

Hap­less Hamish was caught out by amused on­look­ers as he wres­tled with the bright red traf­fic cone.

The con­fused cub could only see red for around an hour at a pond Highland Wildlife Park near Kin­gussie in the High­lands.

The bear, which was muddy from play­ing around on the ground, picked up the squashed cone in his paws and soon was run­ning around with it on his head.

He even­tu­ally man­aged to get it off and threw it back into the wa­ter.
