Siku, the polar bear raised by humans, goes viral on the internet

A month-old polar bear cub is now raised by humans because its mother did not have enough milk to feed it.

According to Scandinavian Wildlife Park manager Frank Vigh-Larsen, Siku is doing “absolutely fine,” currently weighing 7.5 pounds (3.2 kilograms), compared to just 1.7 pounds (800 grams) at birth.

Polar bears require constant care, 24 hours a day, over the first year of life. Therefore, three people in the Scandinavian Wildlife Park staff will take care of the cub during this period.

“He likes to be very social between 10 p.m. and 6 a.m. In the first week he slept in his crate but now he refuses to sleep in there and (instead) sleeps in bed with me,” Vigh-Larsen humorously says.

As he grows, Siku whose name means “ice” in Greelandic, will be returned to live alongside the other polar bears in the Wildlife Park.

The staff that takes care of Siku made a video which has gone viral on the net, putting the cub under the spotlight.

The clip shows him happily rolling around on a towel, stretching out while being tickled or sticking his tongue out.
