    An orphaned Danish polar bear cub named Siku has become a viral sensation after videos went up on YouTube of the one month old fluff ball. Born on November 22 at Denmark's Scandinavian Wildlife Park, Siku was taken in by the zoo when his mother couldn't produce enough milk to feed him. Having made a brief appearance on the Today show, Siku already has 12,000 fans on Facebook and has been dubbed the "new Knut," Germany's biggest tourist attraction until he died of epileptic shock in March. While some cooed over the new cute cub in town, Knut-lovers remain devoted to building a bronze memorial statue in his honor.
