He is on death's doorstep. It's horrible. Please sign the petition (which is not a photo of him) even though it's unlikely to help him. At least it makes a statement. We wrote something very strong in our comment to the petition..:

Noted and signed - this is just blatantly shocking that no one has gone in to rescue this bear yet. How long must he endure this horrendous suffering, this is like the Sunder story - I don't feel that petitions are helping in any way - physical action is what is needed on this one.

Signed the petition. I sign every petition that I can find for Arturo. My heart is breaking for him. In this article, the Zoo officials state that Arturo would not survive the two day trip to Canada. Well, I think that it would be better for him if he did die under anesthesia than to continue this living hell that his life.

NOTED MY DEAR FRIEND...I JUST WATCHED A DOCUMENTARY THAT STATES THAT THE VAST MAJORITY OF BIG GAME ANIMALS IN ZOOS AS WELL AS USED IN WATER SHOWS (THINK TILIKUM AND ALL OTHERS ARE SUFFERING SEVER DEPRESSION AND ARE MAJOR DOSES OF ANTI DEPRESSANTS! THIS IDEOLOGY THAT ONE CAN TAKE AN ANIMAL OUT OF THEIR HABITAT AND AWAY FROM THEIR PACK, POD OR HEARD IS INSANE TO THINK THIS DOES NOT GREATLY DISTRESS THEM. WE HAVE TO GET ZOOS, CIRCUSES AND WATER PARKS VENUES CLOSED DOWN ONCE AND FOR ALL! FOR THE COST OF THE OUTLANDISH TICKETS OFFERED, PEOPLE COULD WELL EASILY RENT A TOUR GUIDE AND GO OUT INTO THESES ANIMALS NATURAL HABITAT AND SEE THEM IN SUCH , EXPERIENCING THE TRUE BEAUTY OF THESE ANIMALS HAPPY AND TOGETHER.

Heartbroken for Arturo. I cannot believe they use the excuse that he would not survive the trip. As if they really care about his needs. Death during liberation would be terrible, but better than suffering who knows how much longer in that horrible place. Petitions signed for poor Arturo. Thank you

This poor bear in so depressed. I have never seen one looking so bad. They simply must remove him to a better environment. No one should have to live like that. Even prisoners have rights regarding their care and this bear is neglected.

if he's too "old and sick" to move, then he is definitely at the point where the 2 day move should be seen as the correct thing to do to give him some chance at living his time as a polar bear....not a dessert bear.....

Are these comments being sent to Argentina? Why the hell do they keep that poor creature in such hellish conditions? Are they too broke to create a cold pool for him? What a barbaric, backward country.
