Victor, a 620kg polar bear, is given an allergy test at the Yorkshire wildlife park near Doncaster after he and a smaller bear, Nobby, began suffering from abscesses on their feet. Three vets, a nurse, three dermatologists and five park staff were on hand to carry out tests while the bear was under sedation. Experts suspected it was caused by an allergic reaction to pollen after it moved from concrete bear pit enclosures to a more natural setting.
