After 2 months, the cub is doing well.

Very cute. And then it rips the head off a baby seal and smears blood all over its face like a toddler with a chocolate ice cream cone.

Spoiler: the sad bit is because the mom couldn't nurse her cub. If you are skipping because you are afraid the cub dies at the end, the cub does NOT die.

That is not a Toronto accent.

My friend, who is not on Metafilter (so he didn't see this), sent me a message earlier just saying "... baby polar bear." I responded with "taking the bath?" and he confirmed. This is indeed my life when people can make vague references to cute animal videos and I know exactly what they're talking about.

And he was introduced to snow for the first time two weeks ago!
