Inupiaq subsistence hunter James Tazruk realized after killing a polar bear in the Arctic that he had taken a nursing sow, so he went in search of the cub. He recovered the small bear, later named Kali, in a den and carried the 18-pound animal home on his snowmobile. Kali now has a temporary home at the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage while federal wildlife officials search for a permanent placement.
