The bear was unveiled with another cub as part of the reopening of the bear park the same day. One of the animals was born at the park in January 2017, and the other was captured in the prefecture at the end of the same month. They weigh 4.5 kilograms and 5.4 kilograms respectively. People have been invited to come up with potential names for the cubs by May 7. The bears will be officially named on May 28. (Mainichi)
