Polar Bear Predicts Confederations Cup Soccer Matches When Given Tasty Treats

A Russian polar bear is predicting soccer matches. Nika is given dishes of food with Confederations Cup contenders. The dish she goes for is the predicted winner. The keeper claims the bear can predict many things.

The orphaned bear was rescued last year, having gotten lost on the migration route for polar bears.

For the 2010 World Cup, another animal oracle was used. Paul the Octopus made many correct predictions for the German team in much the same method as Nika uses.
