In 1900 there were 100,000 cheetahs in the world. By 2006, due to loss of habitat and prey, the number of cheetahs has declined to just 12,000. That's why I founded KidsLoveAnimals.com, which is dedicated to educating kids and their families about endangered species. If you love animals, please bookmark this site.

I hope they keep the little guy alive and use the media interest in him to generate interest and awareness of the plight of the polar bears due to climate change, personally.

I think he will have to remain in captivity, unfortunately, but that's a better end than killing him. I'm sure others disagree, but maybe the publicity and goodwill can be put to good use.

I think they should keep the little cub because as long as they are treating the cub good then yes. he is so aborble. and they should give him to the zoo if they can't take good care of him cause the zoo will. they shouldn't not kill him.

I also believe they shouldn't put him up at the north pole because due to the goble warming and the climate change they just shouldn't that will kill him.poor little cute thing.
