    An orphaned polar cub, named Kali, is making its temporary home at the Alaska Zoo in Anchorage. An official says the bear's mother was killed in mid-March. The cub is about three months old and weighs just over 18 pounds. The zoo is temporarily keeping the little bear until it finds a permanent home.
