Polar Bears at Canadian Zoo Pooping Glitter

May 15, 2016

Polar bears at a Winnipeg Zoo in Canada are pooping glitter.

But don’t worry, this is all part of a plan put in place by the Zookeepers to help them with some research.

The zookeepers have been adding different colours of the sparkly stuff, including purple, red and gold to food given to the polar bears.

It doesn’t harm the animals, but it allows them to identify which sample came from which furry friend.

Tests have been performed on the droppings for two years to track levels of stress in the bears.

It is hoped that by doing this they can see how the bears adjust to life at the zoo.
