Crosseyed Bear Sucks Thumb

"Normally cubs purr when suckling which some think is to remind a hibernating mother bear that her cubs are 'content'. Some previously captive bears continue to do this throughout adulthood, like this one. Can be result of removal from mother at too young an age through hunting or a bear that has been confined to a small enclosure. This rescued bear only knows himself; why he does it."

Is this the same cross-eyed bear that Dave Coulier gave to Alanis?

No, no, but the old joke is, "Gladly, the Cross-Eyed Bear."
