How does it feel to get made fun of by a polar bear?

Behind all that cute fuzziness, Kali, an orphaned polar bear cub currently residing at the Alaska Zoo, is totally sticking his tongue out at you when you're not looking.

Or maybe that's just a theory. But behind those paw-dorable good looks is a Bambi-like story that could break your heart.

The cub, who is about 3 or 4 months old, was taken to his temporary home at the Anchorage zoo last month after his mother was fatally shot. The shooter turned the cub in, reports the Associated Press.

The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service will eventually relocate the cub because the Alaska Zoo already has two polar bears on display.
