UK wildlife park shares 'natural behaviour' of sun bear standing on hind …
There’s been another update in the “human bear” story, after a British wildlife park shared footage of its own animals in defence of the Chinese zoo at the centre of the controversy.
In case you missed it, the drama surrounding “Beargate” has been unfolding over recent days and causing a big stir online.
Hangzhou Zoo in China was recently forced to deny that one of their animals is actually a person in a costume. The bear in question, which goes by the name Angela, was seen standing on its hind legs much like a human would and waving at guests.
The zoo was forced to release a statement saying: “Some people think I stand like a person. It seems you don’t understand me very well.”
“If a person did wear a bear costume, they would be lying down within minutes due to the heat,” they added.
