Recently, the video of a black bear at Bahria Orchard Zoo, Lahore that is showing symptoms of Zoochosis has gone viral.

A bear at Lahore zoo is showing severe symptoms of Zoochosis. The poor animal is not getting proper nutrition and is dehydrated. In temperatures above 45 degrees, the animal is left without a source of water. The living space of the bear is really small from his standards, and he has no company. All of this is causing his mental imbalance.

Black bears naturally live in a forest habitat and feed up grass, berries, insects, all of which are available in a forest in large quantities. From the video, it is evident that the captive surroundings are no way near the actual habitat of the animal.

What is Zoochosis?

Zoochosis is a psychological phenomenon that usually occurs in animals held as captives at Zoos or any other such place. It is a stereotypical behavior shown by them in which an animal displays constant obsessive behavioral patterns. The deterioration in the mental health of such creatures is observed when the captive environment is not satisfactory or up to standards.

Here’s what the people had to say

Other animals at this zoo, such as the lions, have a similar ordeal. The caretakers have completely neglected their needs and are keeping them for the sole purpose of entertainment, without paying any attention to their wellbeing.

The sight of this bear all alone in the zoo and struggling is truly heartbreaking. The authorities need to take strict action against these careless zookeepers. This is just one bear, who knows how many more animals are being held in the zoo without a satisfactory living environment.
