Photos of skinny and haggard bear in China zoo sparks outrage online

A zoo in China has sparked outrage after photos of a haggard-looking bear in one of its enclosures started circulating online.

According to The Coverage, the photos first appeared on Weibo on June 19 and spread like wildfire online thereafter.

In the photos, the bear looked to be in pretty bad condition. It was so skinny that the shape of its bones can be seen through its fur. The animal looked more like a dog than a bear.

Netizens were concerned about the bear's well-being.

The zoo's response to the photos, however, was less-than-comforting.

In a statement, they maintained that the bear’s diet is 'normal and there is no lack of food'.

Hopefully, something gets done soon for the sake of the poor animal soon.
