Now how did they figure that out? Walk up to a polar bear and say, "Excuse me, Miss/Mr, but can you hold this pen for me?" and they always grab it with the left paw? :P

Now you're just being silly! Everybody knows that polar bears only use keyboards!

The best way to check a polar bear's hand preference is to approach the animal quietly, poke it hard with a stick and then check to ascertain which side of your head is still attached to your shoulders.
