Hudson’s mother, Aurora, rejected him and his two siblings shortly after birth. One cub was died immediately and the remaining pair were removed by Zoo staff. Within 24 hours a second cub died from its injuries. Hudson was then hand reared by the staff until February 2012 when he moved into the Zoo’s Tundra Trek enclosure.
The video below was published by the Zoo on 3 February 2012 and shows Hudson aged three months.
