Release Starving Sun Bears in Indonesian Zoo Back Into The Wild or Retire Them to a Sanctuary

Scorpion, a wildlife trade monitoring group, sent an investigator to the tourist attraction where they captured footage of starving bears standing on their hind legs and begging for snacks.

Gunung Gea, the director of Scorpion, told Daily Mail Australia: 'When my team visited the zoo last week there was no grass or live trees on the floor of their cage. 

'We saw a sun bear eating its own dung but when we contacted the zoo's officers they told us the bear was medicated and we weren't allowed to see it.'

Dear Mayor Kamil:

We, the undersigned, demand that the Bandung zoo on the island of Java be closed; and, the animals rehabilitated and released back into the wild.

The state of the zoo and its animals is a blight on the reputation of Indonesia.  Tourists to the zoo are so appalled by the condition of the Sun bears that they are throwing junk food into the enclosures in an attempt to feed them.  Junk food is not good for any body especially animals like Sun bears.

Please Mayor Kamil, show some compassion; close the zoo, rehabilitate the animals; and, release them to a sanctuary or back into the wild.

I sent off the petition to Ridwan Kamil, mayor of Bandung; and, have had no reply. I created a petition aimed at WSPA, WWF, PETA, Scorpion Trading Ltd., and World Animal Protection. The petition can be found at:

Please sign. Thank you for your continued support in trying to release these captives to a sanctuary where they will have medical care, food, and freedom.
