Rare Bear Spotted In Whistler

Biologists are trying to figure out the genetic makeup of a rare, cream-coloured bear cub spotted near Whistler, British Columbia.

Arthur De Jong spotted the cub last Thursday, a few days after a guide first caught a glimpse of it. He says such an unusual bear had never been seen in the ski area, and he snapped a few photos to send to experts.

They're now trying to determine whether it's an albino or a kermode bear, which typically live on BC's north and central coasts.
