New Bear Discovered!

Reading the morning newspapers, as I seriously do, came across this fascinating story and simply had to share it:-

Scientists & Wildlife Experts scratch their heads after recent bear capture...
This purple "ursus maritimus" baffles all."

I was concerned!
Could it be another worrying side effect of Global Warming?
But, after much thought...
Did I get you all, with this story???
It is sort of true.
In July 2003, a zoo in Mendoza, Argentina, treated its 23-year-old Polar bear, Pelusa suffering from Dermatitis, with an antiseptic spray.
The alarming side effect was, it turned her fur purple, making her a world wide bear-celebrity, much loved by children.

Wow, poor bear. At first i thought some people were just being cruel to him. But then I saw the part about his skin, so there.
