BACKGROUND: (UPDATE: 20 DECEMBER-2013)
◕Activists struggle to get elderly polar bear out of the Argentina heat..!
Arturo is a 28-year-old polar bear who lives in a zoo in Mendoza, Argentina. Activists have been campaigning to get him out of Mendoza for months, saying the scorching hot weather is taking a toll on him. A zoo in Canada has even offered to adopt him, but local authorities have swayed back and forth on whether to let him go.
◕According to his keepers, Arturo was born in captivity in the United States. He has spent two decades in Mendoza’s zoo, where he is the only polar bear. Local activists have published multiple videos showing his living conditions online, and petitioned the zoo to let him go to Canada – but despite their continuing efforts, it seems he may not be leaving his pen anytime soon.
◕In the wild, polar bears live an average of 15 to 18 years. However, in captivity, they can live well into their 30s; one bear in a Canadian zoo lived to be 42.
✦✦READ THIS REPORT:From Maria Fernanda Arentsen is originally from Mendoza, Argentina. She works as a university professor in Winnipeg, Canada.
“There is no way for him to escape the heat, which can rise to more than 40 degrees Celsius in Mendoza”
◕◕I first heard of Arturo’s plight through friends of mine in Mendoza who are part of environmental groups there. It was clear from their reports and from videos they filmed of Arturo that he was suffering from the terrible heat in Mendoza, which is not suitable for an animal meant to live in much colder temperatures. We became especially worried about his situation after another polar bear kept in a zoo in Buenos Aires died from the effects of the heat there last year. And that bear lived in much better conditions, in an enclosure with a deep pool and big blocks of ice
.◕As you can see in the videos,(**see below) Arturo lives in a concrete enclosure with only a shallow pool. There is no way for him to escape the heat, which can rise to more than 40 degrees Celsius during the summer months in Mendoza. [The polar bear in Buenos Aires, who was 16 years old, died on a day with a high of 36.7 degrees]. He has been filmed rocking back and forth in a way that animal experts say signals distress. It breaks my heart to see this.◕◕Since I live in an area that is much more suitable for polar bears, I contacted a polar bear conservatory here, which offered to send their experts to evaluate Arturo’s condition and, if he was found fit to travel, take him back to their centre to live out the rest of his life, at no cost to the Mendoza zoo.◕At first, Mendoza zoo officials refused, but then changed their minds and invited the conservatory’s experts to come see Arturo in November. However, just days before the scheduled trip – when the Canadian experts had already booked their tickets, packed all their equipment, etc – the invitation was retracted. [Editor’s Note: The province’s environment minister commented on this decision in a local radio interview by saying that the Canadians were “like pirates” who wanted to steal their bear, and alleged that the trip would kill him.] We were all very disappointed by their decision.
“It seems to me that the zoo is putting its pride ahead of Arturo’s well-being”◕It seems to me that the Mendoza authorities are putting their pride ahead of Arturo’s well-being – and may not want to lose an attraction that brings revenue to the zoo.◕◕Activists in Mendoza are not giving up the fight, however; they have collected more than 60,000 signatures and presented the petition to the local governor. My fingers are crossed, though I worry that nothing will change as long as the local authorities are in office.✦✦FRANCE 24 contacted Don Peterkin, the director of Winnipeg’s Assinoibe Park Conservancy. He replied with the following statement: “We have left our offer to accept Arturo open but have not had any recent communications with officials in Mendoza. As Arturo is ultimately their responsibility, we have to leave the next step, if any, to their discretion.”

✦✦Representatives for the Mendoza zoo did not reply to an interview request by press time; when they respond, we will include their comments here.

Three Years On, ‘Sita’ The White Tigress Still Awaits A Partner So Lives In Solitude

Comments Off on Three Years On, ‘Sita’ The White Tigress Still Awaits A Partner So Lives In Solitude

INDORE: Sita, the white tigress at Kamala Nehru Park, has been forced to live in solitude by the authorities concerned for the past three years even as she has the legal right to have a partner. Though the zoo officials claimed to have launched a search to get a partner for her, the fact is that keeping the tigress without a partner for three years is illegal.

As per Section 38H of the Wildlife (protection) Act 1972, no animalcan be kept alone in a zoo without a partner for more than one year without valid reasons.

Ref.Only

“Every zoo shall endeavour to avoid keeping single animals of non-viable sex ratios of any species. They shall cooperate in pooling such animals into genetically, demographically and socially viable groups at zoos identified for the purpose”, according to Central Zoo authority‘s general policies for zoo across the country. Even the rule book says that every zoo shall keep the animals in viable social groups. No animal will be kept without a mate for a period exceeding one year unless there is a legitimate reason. In the event of a zoo failing to find a mate for an animal, the animal shall be shifted to some other place.

Animal activist Ajay Gadikar told TOI, “Captivated animals in the zoo should not be kept in solitary condition from their mates, not that it is illegal but also it is very depressing for the invertebrates. If there are some animals in the zoo which are living solo, then zoo authorities should take measures. The zoo should be interlinked with other zoo and keep a check whether they have animals to pair with or it can be shifted to someplace. Even Ralamandal authorities keep rescuing animals. So the zoo authorities can ask them to shift the animals to pair them with the zoo animals.”

These animals have been made to live as singletons for the past two to three years. The tigress has been living alone for three years whereas a female jackal and male monkey have been living in isolation for the past one year.

According to the zoo authorities, they have been taking steps to provide mates to the solo animals. “We are doing our best to solve this problem. As monkey and jackal are in surplus around here, we can get them. For the tigress, we have fetched a male white tiger from Bhilai zoo

Baby gorilla dies at Pittsburgh zoo, cause unclear

Comments Off on Baby gorilla dies at Pittsburgh zoo, cause unclear

PITTSBURGH

A gorilla born in February at the Pittsburgh Zoo & PPG Aquarium has died, though zoo officials say it will take several weeks to determine why. 

Zoo officials had not named the male gorilla. It had been born Feb. 9 to Moka, a 15-year-old gorilla brought to the Pittsburgh zoo from one in Miami in 2007.

Barbara Baker, the zoo’s president and chief executive officer, says the gorilla appeared lethargic and weak in its mother’s arms on Friday. She says the animal was transferred to the zoo’s new Animal Care Center where he died Saturday.

Zoo officials announced the death Monday.

The gorilla had been the first born at the zoo since 2001.

The gorilla’s 20-year-old father, Mrithi (mm-REE’-thee), was the first gorilla born at the zoo.

Lions Feed on Live Animals In Iran Zoo – Horrific Video

Comments Off on Lions Feed on Live Animals In Iran Zoo – Horrific Video

“This is shocking to say the least, feeding time at a small Zoo in the North of Iran, has totally outraged, shocked & made me cry! .

We all know captive animals in zoo’s are fed raw meat, as that is their staple diet. Most zoo’s would feed the meat of a dead animal, as nobody wants to see a live animal torn apart in front of their eyes, or do they?.

Some safari park themed zoo’s in Japan/China, where the big cats are kept in large open enclosure, certainly do like to feed live animals. At these locations, one can  ride into the middle of the pride to watch, at feeding times. Once several of the little mini vans have circled the pride of lions, another truck appears. This is a tip up truck, the alarm is sounded, everyone takes out their camera’s to catch the horrific sceptical that follows.  The truck slowly tips its load…& a live cow falls out. The cow barley has a chance to stand before the beasts are on it, tearing apart! The crowds start to cheer & lift their small children up to the windows so they can see the lions devouring a cow, whilst it bellows in excruciating pain!

One would have to be very cold-hearted to even want to watch something like the above happen.  I know animals  in the wild, catch & kill or eat prey alive. But an animal being kept a prisoner in a zoo or safari park just isn’t the same. The lions don’t have to hunt for their food, it’s given to them daily. So there is no need to feed live animals, feeding live animals is  done purely for entertainment purposes, which of course brings in more money!

Somebody sent me a You tube video of  a small  zoo in the North of Iran, which has 3 lions.  The lion enclosure isn’t very big, but at least the lions can lay on grass as opposed to the usual concrete enclosures.  Thick glass walls separate the lions from the public, so you can get very up close & personal with the lions.

Unfortunately, this zoo also likes to entertain the public at feeding times too…but they don’t put a cow in, which is bad enough…they put a live donkey in. The video is 15 minutes long, the time it took for the lion to asphyxiate the poor donkey by grasping its neck. The other lions didn’t bother to  wait, until it was dead. They may have been starved for a few day’s, I don’t know as there is no written words that accompany the video, in fact I can’t find much at all on this grim video.

It really angers & upsets me to know that this happening, it is just barbaric. But judging by the large crowd, who glorified in  taking pictures & videos of the lions feeding, it seemed an organised event. Perhaps the people pay more on feeding days. It also bothered me that once again, small children were at the front of the crowds.

What sort of message is this inappropriate spectacle sending to children, who are allowed to watch, even take pictures of such brutal bloody spectacles… it certainly won’t teach them that all living beings have feelings like pain, nor that all animals deserve freedom from pain & it certainly won’t teach them to respect animals when they are older. What the hell are the parents thinking; several of those children are  animal abusers in the making. 

For Gods sake, if you want to see an animal devour another, go to the natural habitat where said animal lives. No zoo should allow captive  animals to kill their own dinner, let alone have the public to pay to watch…It needs to be banned ASAP!!”

Please note – Viewer discretion is strongly advised.  (All done in the name of entertainment, to make money…Sick!)
