Yet another reason to get rid of Zoos.
The three American black bears Farah, Lulu and Nabila, died at Giza zoo during the night from Saturday, 5th of May, 2013.
According to the official statement released by Gizaa zoo, the three bears mauled each other to death as they fought over a male partner. Apparently, workers and veterinarians tried to separate them, but all three bears end up dying after an hours-long battle that lasted from 3 o’clock in the afternoon until midnight. “Their fighting has lead to their death as a result of their fractures of their necks, said the official statement from Giza zoo.
That is NOT the truth. Gisa Zoo are covering this up.
In the two days following the death of Farah, Lulu and Nabila, a number of inconsistencies have emerged raising questions as to the true circumstances of the three unfortunate grizzly bears’ tragic death:
- Three bears maul each other to death - all end up dead. No-one survives. Isn’t that very strange?
- The pathology report revealed: break in neck, lower jaw, break in the chest bones, break in spinal cord. Such injuries cannot be sustained through a bear fight.
- The pathology was done in THE ZOO, not in the national pathology laboratory in the National Institute for Animal Health, which casts some doubt on the results… The bodies of the 3 bears have been buried quickly behind the donkeys’ enclosure.
- Apparently, the females fought over a male, but according to reports, there was no male in the enclosure.
Dr. Osama Salim - Chairman of the General Authority for Veterinary Services, said in a statement that “spring is the mating season for wild animals, stressing that the quarrel between wild animals is always among males, stressing that what happened at the zoo is worth studying….” Females have NEVER been known to fight over males, as it is always the males who do the fighting.
according to another of their own statements, the zoo keepers had tried to separate them using water hoses but that only lasted a while so they went back at each other again. They said the vet was called in and that he shot them with tranquilizers. But as they were kicking in, a crowed had gathered around the bears enclosure - the bears panicked and tried to climb up the enclosure and fell off. Their statement made after post mortem says the bears died from multiple fractures due to the fall.
Two days after the death of the bears, a witness reported that, in preparation for the sham el nessem (the Easter holiday during which more than 70,000 people are excepted to visit the zoo) the bears where given a tranquilizer to keep them calm during the day. The witness, that wanted to remain anonymous, said that the bears were given an overdose.
This story was confirmed later by the newspaper Al-Watan. The three bears died because of a sedative overdose, leading to two falling over and breaking several bones, while the remaining one drowned.
