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.
Well Rogaine those bitches or something -- this shit ain't right! As much as I do love hunting bears and killing the shit out of them WITH MY BEAR HANDS (more word sorcery), bald bears make me sad as hell. Remember Fuzzy Wuzzy? Brings a tear to my eye.
Hit the jump for three more shots, including one of what Dolores normally looks like.
Thanks to LokkyD, Camille, Devin and Chris, who have all made love on faux bearskin rugs in front of fireplaces while sipping sparkling grape juice. Hell of a coincidence.
