The joy of zoologists who discovered in the American Michigan unique black bear with white fur, turned out to be extremely short – after some time the predator was found dead.

An extremely rare clubfoot – albino initially became the “prey” of the camera in early September, when it ate the bait planted by the hunters.

Soon, pictures of the bear cub appeared on social networks: users did not get tired of telling how rare it was and how lucky the state was that such a unique predator settled in its forests.

According to experts, a black bear with white fur is an extremely rare result of natural selection. For its appearance, it is necessary that a pair of bears that conceive offspring have a recessive gene for white wool. Such bears in America are also called ghostly.

“It’s just exciting to see such an animal appearing here and not somewhere else. We have found animals that are cinnamon in color, a little light and chocolatey in some of the pictures. But they are common in bear populations. Whites are special, – wrote cody norton, large carnivore specialist from the Michigan Department of Natural Resources.

Alas, the owner of the unique white coat was soon found dead. According to department officials, the bear was bitten by wolves. What the clubfoot did not share with the orderlies of the forest is unknown, but scientists are sure that the reason for the attack of the flock was not at all the color of its coat.
