SINGAPORE: Past and present caregivers gathered for Inuka's final health check before the polar bear was put down on Wednesday (Apr 25), photos released by the Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) showed.
The 27-year-old male polar bear, the first to be born in the tropics, was put down in the morning at Singapore Zoo due to his deteriorating health.
In one of the photos, Inuka's family of caregivers appeared sombre as they gathered around to watch Inuka receive the final injection that was administered by Dr Abraham Mathew, the assistant director of veterinary services.
In another photo, Dr Cheng Wen-Haur, the chief life sciences officer and deputy CEO of WRS, was seen examining Inuka's lower abdomen for the last time. The final examination was conducted alongside Dr Mathew and Mr Mohan Ponichamy, the deputy head keeper and one of Inuka's caregivers."
RIP to Anuka! Many visit the polar bear. Some love it. Some feel pity for it.
Now it does not matter as ir is freed!
Noted the zoo said it will not or probably not hv another polar bear in captivity.
