0 1247

This polar bear is called Arturo, known as “the world’s saddest animal”. He lives in Argentina, and since his best friend has passed away, his mental condition has become worse. Nowadays, many experts, including those in other countries, are trying to rescue him.

Now a campaign has been launched to save the last polar bear in Argentina, who is called “the world’s saddest animal“.

However, he’s not born to be sad. His mental condition has become worse since his best company, Pelusa, died two years ago.

And his condition has become worse and worse. Every day he is down like this.

Arturo currently lives in Mendoza Zoo, the only zoo in Mendoza, Argentina. And he’s been here for 20 years. Now he’s 29.

Arturo was born in the US in 1985 and arrived in Mendoza in 1993.

And he absolutely wants to do nothing a whole day.

This is where he lives.

Arturo is currently living in temperatures that can climb to as high as 40 degrees. Polar bears like him typically need to live in temperatures at minus 40 degrees.

Animal rights campaigners are now desperately trying to get him moved to another zoo that offers cooler conditions.

But according to the Sunday People, Mendoza Zoo – where Arturo is currently enclosed – blocked an effort to move him to Assiniboine Park Zoo in Winnipeg, Canada, in February.

In Winnipeg, there is a new International Polar Bear Conservation Centre that is believed would suit Arturo’s needs.

But the zoo did not believe the bear would survive the two-day trip. To avoid making “a big mistake”, the medical board decided against it.

For Arturo to be moved to Canada, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency requires specific records dating back at least three years.

It’s been reported that Mendoza Zoo had failed to provide the needed documents.

The campaign to have Arturo relocated to another zoo has been building for months, and has driven huge numbers of people to take action.
