An Orphaned Polar Bear Cub Returns To Give Her Rescuers A Warm Hug!

An orphaned baby polar bear was found by gold miners on Russia’s Bolshevik Island near their shelter. This bear cub arrived at this station without its mother. This polar bear, attracted by the smell of food coming from the mine, seemed to be very hungry.

The little polar bear cub approached the miners and told them that she was hungry and begged them to feed her.

Despite strict laws against feeding the endangered polar bear, the miners decided to feed her instead of starving her, and saving her was their priority.

For several months, they lovingly cared for the bear cub and fed it daily.

Luckily for her, they saved her life with her protection. But she lost her ability to hunt and day by day this wild animal became tame to them like a dog.

It was time for the miners to finish their contract and go back to the land. They had no choice but to leave the bear cub on the island.
Before they left, they asked a group of people for help, as the bear could not survive much longer without them.

Andrey Gorban, 56, director of Krasnoyarsk’s Roev Ruchey Zoo, who was in charge of the rescue unit, said: “The workers could only get in touch with us at the end of their work stint, as they had no communication link at the base.”

“We were told that the men were leaving back to the mainland, and the cub had stayed there alone. Our only hope was that they left quite a big open rubbish site, so there was a chance that the cub could feed off it for weeks.”

An operation to rescue the bear cub was launched with the help of the Moscow Zoo. They sent a helicopter to Bolshevik Island to pick up the bear and luckily they found this little pet. The bear cub remained on the island looking for workers to feed her, then the bear was transferred back to the Moscow Zoo where a decision was made as to where it should be permanently housed.

“For right or wrong, they fed the endangered animal and through that tamed it. The shift workers saved its life, the cub had no chance to survive.” said Andrey Gorban, praising the miners for their kind hearts.
