Light at the end of the tunnel for the Worlds Saddest Polar Bear

Back in July I posted a thread about the plight of The Worlds Saddest Polar Bear who is imprisoned in a sparse holding pen at the Grandview shopping Centre in China as an exhibit for shoppers amusement , the accompanying video in that thread was probably the most heartbreaking pieces of footage concerning animal cruelty I've ever seen.

Today comes news that the days of torment for the poor animal may be coming to an end as the Yorkshire Wildlife Park in Doncaster, England have made a public offer to the owners of the exhibit to rehouse the Polar Bear at its specially-created habitat for polar bears , I hope the negative publicity the centre received along with the over half a million signatures the Animals Asia petition has gained will be enough for the owners of the Grandview Centre to accept the offer and release the Bear before it's too late.

"We would be delighted to see Pizza end up at Yorkshire Wildlife Park," said Animals Asia's Welfare Director Dave Neale.
"There can be a happy ending - Pizza would not only enjoy incredible facilities, he would also be part of a community of bears.
" The charity also said that no financial payment had been offered for the bear, "with the fear that any funds could be used to buy more animals".

All we can do is hope.

I hope so. No living thing should have to endure what that poor bear has.

Great news! I remember that older topic too.

The conservation work I've done with exotic species has been with cold-blooded animals, but I've seen some horrendous actions against protected species. it always feels so much worse when it's not just an individual whom wishes to keep such an animal as a pet in poor conditions, but a well funded site or organization that is clearly so disinterested in the wellbeing of the animal in order to boost monetary personal gains.
It's beyond-ignorance

Oh I really hope so. If it happens, can we get an update? I need to know that the bear is happy.

If it happens I will post a jubilant update on this thread , this Polar Bear has been in my thoughts since I first came across the story so I will be more than pleased to share the good news should it happen.

Everybody has the right to e-mail their local Chinese embassy to raise the issue with them , it may not make a difference but there's a chance it could if enough people do it.
I e-mailed the Cultural Section of the London Chinese embassy , didn't get a reply but registered my opinion nonetheless.

Let's hope so


A culture that still believes you get three wishes from a tiger penis might be unpredictable lol. Jeez, they even make generic Viagra over there and still take their chances with rhino horn. That polar bear can count his blessings that he isn't in some wooden cage having his bile tapped to cure headaches.

Rescuing a bear is cool and I'm all for it. There'll still be the trade in 'magic' animal parts and I don't know how that can be turned around.
