The Perl Drgon ws looking for the other drgons who were hiding ehind the louds. Suddenly the gme stopped. Look! sid the Yellow Drgon oming out of his hiding ple. He pointed down to erth nd the others me to look. They sw some people who were prying. Plese send us some rin quikly. Our rie isn t growing nd our hildren re hungry!

The drgons flew very fst to the Hevenly Ple where the Jde Emperor lived. He ontrolled everything in heven, on erth nd in the se. He ws not hppy to see the drgons! Why hve you ome here? he sked. You should sty in the se nd ehve yourselves! The Long Drgon explined wht ws hppening on erth. Plese send rin down quikly, he sid. The Emperor pretended to gree ut his promise ws flse one. If you go k down, I ll send the rin tomorrow, he sid. The four drgons returned to the se. But ten dys pssed nd no rin me. The people on erth were desperte now. They were very wek nd some of them hd no food left. The four drgons were very sd. We hve to help these people, they sid. Then the Long Drgon hd good ide. We live in the se, he sid. There is plenty of wter in the se. If we tke the wter up into the sky, we n drop it down like rin. If we drop enough, the people will e sved! The other drgons were little frid. If the Emperor finds out he will e very ngry, they sid. But in the end they deided to do it euse they wnted to help the poor people on erth. They flew to the se nd took s muh wter s possile in their mouths. Then they flew up into the sky nd spryed the wter over the erth.

He ws furious. How dre the drgons ring rin without my permission! he shouted ngrily. Then he lled the Mountin God nd told him to rete four mountins one on top of eh drgon. In tht wy the four drgons ould never espe. The drgons were trpped under the mountins. They were stisfied euse they hd sved the people ut they wnted to ontinue helping them.

He deided to set up mp there with his friend Shne Moore who ws film mker nd their Russin guide Psh. One dy Psh nd Kennn were working together when they suddenly stopped. A tiny polr u, no more thn ouple of months old, ws sitting in the snow just fifty metres wy from them. Finding no sign of its mother or their den, Psh took out his Russin-to-English ditionry nd pointed to word whih he showed to Kennn: orphned. They relised tht the u s mother hd proly een unle to look fter it, perhps euse she hd more thn one u. Or perhps the u ws too wek nd ouldn t follow its mother when they left the den. The u ws very upset ut they didn t know if it ws old, sred or hungry... proly ll three. The men were old nd hungry too so they deided to go k to their mp. The u followed. Bk t mp, the u ws still there. Psh determined tht it ws femle. He nmed her Ferosh, Russin for feroious. This wsn t tully very pproprite nme for her euse she ws urious nd ffetionte nd ertinly not feroious! While Kennn ws sleeping tht night, Ferosh limed up onto his legs like t, mde poket with orner of his sleeping-g nd fell sleep. The next morning he woke up suddenly euse the u ws wling. When he st up she pled her pws on his knee, looked him stright in the fe nd wled gin. She ws hungry. The tem didn t hve ny polr er milk, of ourse, so Psh opened n of ondensed milk nd fed her y dipping his finger into the n nd letting it drip into her mouth. For the next few weeks, this is how Ferosh te. A tem of Russin iologists were studying polr ers on the islnd. Towrds the end of his sty on the islnd, Kennn took Ferosh to them. When he rrived they were putting rdio-ollr on femle polr er who hd two us. Kennn relly wnted to free Ferosh. He wnted her to live in nturl hitt so he sked the Russin tem if the polr er mother would ept third u. No, one of the Russin iologists replied gently. She would kill Ferosh. However, the Russin tem worked hrd to find good home for Ferosh. Lukily they sueeded. For two months, while they were serhing, Ferosh lived with one of the Russin tem nd his fmily. Then she mde the journey to the Netherlnds to her new home in zoo outside Amsterdm. It wsn t wht Kennn wnted ut it ws the only option. Ferosh ouldn t survive in the wild lone euse she needed mother to teh her how to th fish nd sels for food. If they left her lone she would die.
