Perhaps the saddest thing you could experience is to see, first-hand, how cruel human can be when it comes to animals. A maltreated bear gets a second chance after several members working a wildlife organization found the poor creature nearly dead at the outskirts of town.
Humanity may have come a long way since the Dark Ages, but when it comes to animal cruelty, things haven’t changed that much. As long as we consider ourselves kings of the jungle and the food chain, then all actions on animals are justified.
We don’t say that we should do nothing against animals, especially when our lives are at stake, but wanton cruelty is not the answer.
Of course, everyone still remembers the latest case of wanton cruelty which took place in Argentina. Apparently, some dude, though it was kind of amusing to make a baby dolphin out of the water and to use as some sick prop for people who want to take selfies with the defenseless creature.
Well, as we imagine, in the end, after being kept out of the water for too long, the dolphin’s skin began to dry up, and he succumbed.
Now, on the subject of wanton cruelty, we bring before you the case of Ajayu, an adult bear who was disfigured and killed by rumor. The whole thing happened in Bolivia, in a little town just outside the capital.
According to the Bolivian Zoo who received the wounded animal, Ajayu was attacked by a group of angry villagers just a few miles outside of town. All the villagers in the hunting party said that the action against the bear was necessary because the beast has tried, on several occasions, to attack a child.
The Bolivian zookeepers who now care for Ajayu said that they have received the bear at the beginning of January. Unfortunately, to his severe injuries had to be subjected to multiple surgeries.
His wounds being much too deep, the beast lost its left eye. Moreover, the animal remained under anesthesia for a few extra hours to have a cataract removed from its right eye.
According to the NGO, who brought in the injured bear, when Ajayu was found dying outside the Bolivia capital, he was malnourished.
Luckily, the bear managed to put on 33 extra pounds since he was brought to the zoo. The bear’s keepers said that Ajayu is going to be just fine, and, in a couple of months, he will be ready to be released back into the wild.
A maltreated bear gets a second change after NGO volunteers found him nearly dead outside the Bolivia’s capital.
