L'orso polare maschio uccide l'orso femmina durante il tentativo di riproduzione allo zoo di Detroit

Un orso polare femmina è stato ucciso da un orso maschio lunedì durante un tentativo di riproduzione allo zoo di Detroit, secondo a comunicato stampa.

Anana femmina, chi era 20 Anni, e maschio Nuka, 16, had lived together without incident in 2020 and zoo officials say they are surprised and devastated by what happened.
This was completely unexpected, and the Detroit Zoo staff is devastated by the loss of Anana,” Detroit Zoological Society Chief Life Sciences Officer Scott Carter said in the release.
Nuka has lived at the zoo for 10 years without ever showing harmful behavior toward female polar bears, according to the zoological society.
    Anana had lived at the zoo for just over a year. The bears were reintroduced last week after several months of separation as part of a conservation program designed to protect the endangered species.
    The Association of Zoos & Aquariums (AZA) Polar Bear Species Survival Plan is a cooperative population management and conservation program that helps ensure the sustainability of healthy captive animal populations,” ha detto il comunicato.
      The program has been successful through the recent birth of twin cubs whose parents are Nuka and 8-year-old Suka, secondo l'organizzazione.
      The last time an animal was killed by another animal at the zoo was in 1988. That incident also involved polar bears, ha detto il comunicato.
