Ohio zoo welcomes polar bear cub

Jan. 5, 2010 (AP): An Ohio zoo’s recent arrival may not be having much trouble dealing with this week’s severe cold.

The Toledo Zoo announced Tuesday that a polar bear cub was born on Dec. 3 and is being cared for by its mother.

The zoo says the baby bear was born with a sibling, but it died after a few days, apparently because of an umbilical cord problem.

In a statement, the zoo says it's cautiously optimistic about the surviving cub. The mother bear, Crystal, gave birth in 2006 to twins, and zoo officials say they're hopeful she still has good maternal instincts.

The zoo has left mother and cub alone in a secluded den area and has been monitoring the baby through video. The animal's sex has not yet been determined.
