#ARCTIC. #SIBERIA. THIS IS TAIMYR. A seriously injured polar bear from Dikson, who was urgently taken to Moscow for treatment last week, will no longer be able to walk. This was told by the Moscow Zoo director Svetlana Akulova.
“According to the neurologist, the bear’s problems cannot be solved by surgery. Vertebral fracture, spinal cord contusion, myelopathy – due to such injuries, the animal will never be able to walk again. Perhaps the situation will be slightly improved by physiotherapy and swimming”, Akulova wrote in the Telegram channel.
According to her, despite the disappointing forecast, experts will develop a program for the bear’s rehabilitation. This will be the first experience for Moscow Zoo veterinarians, as they have never dealt with the rehabilitation of large carnivores before.
Earlier, This Is Taimyr reported that due to climate change, brown bears will move farther to the North and have joint offspring with polar predators.
