A video of an abandoned polar bear named Siku has been viewed over 100,000 times in less than 24 hours.

Born at the Scandinavian Wildlife Park last month, Siku’s mother did not make enough milk so he is being raised by humans at the Danish Zoo, according to The New York Daily News.

Siku — or “Sea Ice” in Greenlandic — weighs seven pounds and will get 24-hour care from three zoo employees.

Earlier this year, the famous German polar bear Knut died at the Berlin Zoo at the age of four.
