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.

  1. What!!! I thought it had magically there or something other than people or Zoo keepers putting it in their food!!!!!!! on the other hand it is harmless to the polar bears so it is ok.

  2. That is actually quite clever, it sounds reall dangerous for the animals but if it isn’t harming them, then why not?

  3. what even gave them the idea? For a second I thought they were fairy’s or something!!!!!!(but I don’t believe in fairy-polar-bear-things) maybe I should try that on my cat…

  4. Wow you could say that these polar bears are the “butt” of the joke. HAH get it anybody?

  5. I hope that this article isn’t inspiring kids around the world to eat glitter because it is unhealthy!
