Columbus zoo’s 5-month-old polar bear cub makes her debut

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A 5-month-old female polar bear cub at the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium has made quite a playful debut.

The cub born in early November frolicked around her enclosure on Friday and even got an orange traffic cone stuck on her head for a moment.

About 1,000 people lined up to get the first glimpses of the polar bear, named Nora. The cub provided a lot of entertainment and laughter as she swam and bounded around her enclosure.

The cub’s twin died shortly after birth, and she has been hand-reared since her mother began neglecting her.
