BERLIN – Scientists are baffled over a group of bears who have lost their fur!
The bears live at a zoo in Leipzig, Germany. Dolores, and all the other female bears at the zoo, have seen almost all of their fur fall out!
Usually at this time in the season, the bears would be growing an even thicker coat for the winter. Some scientists believe that it is a genetic defect in the breed, which originates in South America.
The condition, which is causing rashes and inflammations on their skin, is also pulling in bigger crowds! Whatever is causing their fur loss does not appear to be affecting them in any other way.
