White Black Bear

Postby dennis » Thu Jun 05, 2008 2:38 pm

White black bears being sited in the North West Territories, Canada. There is a population in British Columbia, Canada where white black bears are seen (1 out of 10) but outside of that population it is very rare to find a white bear. Otherwise known as Spirit Bears or Kermode Bears the white bears of BC, Canada are not albinos but a color phase like the cinnamon brown black bears. These are nice looking bears and it is interesting that you cannot find any in captivity. Especially since the wild population is at risk due to habitat loss caused by logging.
In 2004 a white bear was found in Manitoba Canada whose mother was killed by a car. The cub ended up being place in the Assiniboine Park Zoo where she still lives. Recent genetic studies have shown that she is different from the white spirit bear and is a new mutation.
I know that when I open up as a zoo I am going to see about getting a pair.

Beautiful! Do they generally make it to adulthood, with their white coloring?

Aww, the cub is gorgeous! I'm glad that it's living at a zoo instead of having to be put down. . .

Are there any black polar bears? ;)

interesting thought bb.

I would think the mother didn't even realize the cub was different.
or, maybe she did and that is why she stepped in front a moving car :lol:

That is soooo sad. I actually didn't read the story. Did the mother got run over and the cub got saved and put in a zoo?

Hello everyone this is Jan, I am a new member. I did not know there to be such a thing as a white black bear! So precious I am overtaken with the beauty of both mother and white baby ! :bear:

I would like to share a picture of my friend Shadow Bear....I just love bears! I have Shadow Bear, she came to me from the wilds and I feed her on my lap. Here are some pictures of her on my web site. Take a look !

I found Sybil's Message board here in my journeys online trying to find a black bear cub to buy. If anyone has any leads or info, please write to me. Thanks !

I was also heartbroken to know the mother bear was hit by a car. This is a tragedy and I wish there were some way this could be prevented.

Have a great day, all.

Sincerely,
Jan
