Paralyzed bear Dikson hunts in pool

Zoologists will continue to arrange ‘fishing’ for the polar predator to stimulate mobility.

#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. Rescued in the north of the Krasnoyarsk region bear Dikson with paralyzed hind legs hunted live trout for the first time in his pool.

According to the director of the Moscow Zoo Svetlana Akulova, the predator was immediately interested in the live fish.

“Dikson proved to be a real hunter: he cornered the fish and quickly grabbed it with his teeth. The way the bear deftly dealt with his prey suggests that he already has hunting skills: most likely, his mother taught him”.

Zoologists at the Moscow Zoo will continue to regularly arrange “fishing” for the bear – this will help develop its hunting instinct and stimulate mobility.

Recall that Nornickel will double the amount that the Russians will collect for the rehabilitation of Dikson.

Earlier, Rosprirodnadzor awarded participants in polar bear rescue operations, and scientists told how polar predators learn to survive in a changing climate. Researchers worry that by the end of the century these Red Book animals may disappear.
