“The rescued bear feels better, he has a great appetite, he sleeps weell. The zoo workers have already given him a name – Dikson. Employees create comfortable conditions for the bear: they washed the cage, and when they filled the drinker with water, the bear decided to plunge its muzzle into it. The health dynamics is positive, although the hind legs are still immobilized. Veterinarians are doing everything to make the bear recover. In the near future, he will be sent for computed tomography with contrast”, Radionova wrote in her Telegram channel.
In turn, the Moscow Zoo director, Svetlana Akulova, noted that the polar bear’s appetite is like that of a healthy one:
“The predator is recuperating and eating a lot: the dinner was oatmeal in beef broth. And before that, he had eaten raw and boiled meat, greenlings and horse mackerel, and ate quail eggs.
Earlier, This Is Taimyr reported on an operation to rescue the polar bear from Dikson island, in which doctors found multiple gunshot wounds. Nornickel took an active part in saving the Red Book animal.
