The two bears who were the last two creatures to live in Pakistan’s “worst zoo in the world” have been liberated and will live out their lives in Jordan.
Bubloo and Suzie are two Himalayan brown bears who have been compelled to perform acts of entertainment for guests in the Marghazar zoo facilities for many years.
It was also the home of the well-known Kaavan, the “loneliest elephant in the world,” which garnered international news.
The sad bears have been held hostage in this spot for 13 years; they are both 17 years old and will be sent to a Jordanian animal refuge. His new home will be a peaceful haven run by the Princess Alia Foundation, which was formed by the king’s eldest daughter.
Since their arrival at the zoo in 2007, the animals have been exposed to various forms of torture, including being made to dance and act. They had their teeth extracted to keep them from attacking their “trainers,” who beat them and forced them to dance and do other activities. a subset of acts
The bears’ wellbeing was a concern for animal welfare organizations, as both animals had health issues.
Suzie underwent surgery to remove a tumor, but she contracted an infection as a result of the inability to seal the cut on her chest. Fortunately, veterinarians from around the world came to the Pakistan zoo to heal the animal, who had been in excruciating pain for months.
Suzie is also underweight, according to Dr. Amir Khalil of FOUR PAWS, a group in charge of the bears that is pushing to close the facility. Bubloo, on the other hand, has been suffering from a tooth abscess, which has resulted in aggressive behavior that is unusual for this species.
The two animals also show conventional behavior, such as bobbing back and forth, suggesting discomfort and boredom, exposing years of neglect and torture.
Dr. Amir first visited the zoo in 2016, and since then, he has stated that the circumstances there are unsuitable for the animals.
He offered several suggestions, but they were entirely disregarded. According to records, there were 960 animals in the area, but 500 of them vanished.
