These pictures were posted on another site. It is said to be from North Western PA but I am not sure how accurate that information is. At any rate......it is one awesome little bear! Where ever he is from it would be nice to see him grow to an adult :D

In the first pic he looks almost more like a wolf cub or some other kind of canine than a bear. Really cute little guy.

You have just seen a Kermode Bear, caused by a double recessive gene.....they are quite common in British Columbia, but are rarely seen elsewhere. These are fantastic pictures. The bear will stay white throughout it's lifespan.....they are not albinos. I doubt this picture came from PA, but if it did, it is very, very, very unusual. They are known also as "Spirit Bears" in B.C.

Awesome bear pics. Would love to find one at my bait site. I would dump it in a heart beat when older. Very impressive wherever it came from.

Just a little technical correction there, whitedeer. While Kermode black bears are white, all white black bears are not classified as Kermode bears. Kermode bear ONLY live along the coast of B.C. and a few along the coast of S.E. Alaska. Anywhere else a white black bear would just be classified as a "white phased" black bear, not a Kermode.
