    Who's taken my fur coat? Vets baffled by bald bears with mystery condition

    You'd have thought a fur coat would have been the ultimate bear necessity.

    But not for the unfortunate Dolores who has lost all her body hair and has just been left with a few tufts around her head.

    Vets have been left baffled by the condition of the bespectacled bear, who lives at a zoo in Leipzig.

    And Dolores isn't the only one. The sudden hair loss has affected all female bears at the zoo.

    Some experts believe it could be due to a genetic defect though the animals do not seem to be suffering from any other affliction.

    The bears, which originate from South America, normally have fluffy dark brown fur and would now be growing a thicker fur coat to keep warm during the winter.

    I am not amused at the mirth over one of my relative's misfortunes...

    Remember, you mess with the bear, you get the claws... you just may not get the fur...

    My mind must be mush. I read the title of the thread several times before I realized it was referencing veterinarians and not veterans. I kept wondering what the heck veterans had to do with bald bears.
