An orphaned polar bear cub is set to become an internet sensation after adorable footage of the youngster was posted on YouTube.

Month-old Siku is being hand-reared at a Danish zoo after his mother failed to produce enough milk to feed him.

Staff at the Scandinavian Wildlife Park caught the cute cub on camera wriggling around, suckling on a keeper’s finger and squeaking as he slurps milk.

The infant weighed just three pounds when he was born, but now weighs a healthy seven pounds, according to park manager Frank Vigh-Larsen.Mr Vigh-Larsen added that the cub was two days old when he was removed from his mother after surveillance video inside the bear cave revealed that he "was moaning and being unruly all the time."

Siku, whose name means ‘Sea Ice’ in Greenlandic, would have been in danger of death if he had stayed with his mother.

Three people are giving round-the-clock care to the cub at the zoo in Kolind, 105 miles northwest of Copenhagen.
