  • A Tragic Polar Bear named Pizza is on Display at a Chinese Shopping Center

A tragic polar bear named Pizza is on display at a Chinese shopping center. People take selfies with this sad polar bear and it is truly a sight that is dismal.

Over 285,000 people have put their names on a petition that seeks to put an end to an aquarium in China. The issue seems to be a lonely and sad polar bear named Pizza that resides at the aquarium.

This polar bear is lethargic and a pitiful sight. It needs to be put back into the context of its natural environment. Yet here it is stuck in a man-made world where it is an object of amusement and entertainment.  

Located in Grandview shopping center in Guangzhou, the polar bear is always within reach for a selfie or two. The aquarium was condemned right from the start due to the conditions in which the animals are kept in it.

Some have gone so far as to label it a horrific animal prison house. The management of the aquarium were in a state of denial as they rejected claim after claim by saying that they looked after all the needs of the animals.  

According to the management, the polar bear was happy. From the looks of it, such is not the case though. Something which is especially irksome is when tourists assemble in groups to pose for selfies with these animals.

The animals are furthermore kept in cramped conditions. Many animal rights organizations are up in arms against this extreme injustice. A Hong Kong charity named Animals Asia was invited to visit the aquarium and see whether there was any injustice being done to the animals.

According to Guardian, Animals Asia reported that the aquarium would not close down. However, its animal welfare director said that based on his charity’s feedback the aquarium’s management had promised to improve the conditions of the marine life forms. 

Among some of the animals on display at the shopping center were: arctic wolves, beluga whales and baby walrus. There has been another case of public pressure leading to the betterment of the living quarters of animals in a zoo in Hanoi.

Elephants had been freed of their shackles and lions and tigers were emancipated from their routine circus chores. Apparently by issuing threats to the authorities nothing is accomplished.

Neither does ignoring the plight of the animals attain anything. Rather cooperating with the zoo or park authorities leads to constructive changes in the living conditions of the animals.
