Animal Pictures of the Week: 3 June 2011 as presented by: Telegraph Media Group

Augo the polar bear cub plays with a giant red ball at Aalborg Zoo in Denmark. Augo used to be attached to his blue bucket, which he would wear on his head, but now he has a new toy. Visitors to Aalborg Zoo have been treated to the sight of Augo hugging and nuzzling his bright ball and leaping into the pool and chasing it around. A greedy chipmunk stuffs its mouth with corn on the cob. The cheeky creature pounced on the cob within minutes of photographer Barbara Lynne hanging it in her back garden in Ontario, Canada, for the birds. Barbara says: "We call her Eleanor, however we are not sure whether she is male or female. Eleanor is always a pig and stuffs her cheeks until she looks ready to explode. She runs back to her den to empty her pouches - and starts stuffing them all over again." A bear cub named Medo plays with the Logar family dog in Podvrh village, Slovenia. The Logar family has adopted the three-and-half-month-old bear cub that strolled into their yard about a month ago.
