According to Daily Post, when the winter comes to Germany, animals grow themselves a thick coat of fur just like people wear thick and warm clothes. However, a Spectacled Bear in a German zoo strangely "took off" its coat and has now become a "naked" bear. Now, the big problem of surviving the cold winter needs to be addressed.
Becoming "naked" is definitely not the bear’s fault, it seems to have been the victim of an unknown disease. But the questions of what exactly the illness is and how to treat it have confused vets very much. As of now, vets still don’t know the cause and whether the illness is going to infect other female bears or not. They predicted that it might have been caused by a genetic defect.
