Arturo is living in hell. Arturo are denied a life for an existence that no one deserves! WHY does Argentina say no for him to move? WHY won’t they take the responsibility and let him go to Canada where he would be with other Polar bears and in a climate that fits him? I can not imagine one single reason that would be good enough. Or is it a case of better with bad publicity for the Zoo, than none? Disgusting!
“Two years ago, Arturo’s long-time companion, a polar bear named Pelusa, died and he has since had not contact with other bears. In fact, Arturo is displaying many signs of depression and “abnormal behaviour,” baring his teeth while pacing and rocking from side to side.
On top of this, Arturo is living in extreme heat in Argentina. He has no opportunities to act as a normal polar bear and his only access to water is a pool 50cms deep. There is a real risk of death from hyperthermia for Arturo.”
