Rare white bear seen in Canada

A rare white bear has been seen in Canada.

The rear bear was seen by Cara Clarkson in the Canadian Rocky Mountains. She had been driving down a remote highway when a figure glimpsed against the dark evergreen forest left them in disbelief.

The family briefly pulled over to watch the bear and its sibling, which had darker fur.

“We were like, ‘holy smokes!’ We knew we were so lucky because white grizzly bears are unheard of,” said Clarkson told local media.

Grizzly bears normally range in colouration from dark brown to blond, but a white bear is incredibly rare.

Experts say the colouring is the result of a recessive gene in the cub – not albinism.

Local wildlife officials have known about the white grizzly since 2017, but this marks the first time the public has caught a glimpse of the ghostly predator.
