Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.
Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.
sign this or die
This is the most depressing creature I have ever laid eyes on.
Well, im from Argentina and this is pretty old news (this happened in summer, it’s already winter here), so. He’s still alive (almost dead, actually) but it’s already signed and confirmed, that people wont free him for one exclusive reason: he’s used to be there, he doesnt know how to act in his natural enviroment. That was said a few days ago.
Sadly, another animal dead in a zoo. Also a pack of dogs attacked and killed other animals in the last days. If im not wrong. The zoo isnt in conditions to be opened, but welcome to capitalism, ha.
