Zookeepers in Kharkiv area cover up Himalayan bear for evacuation

Zookeepers at the Feldman Ecopark, just north of Kharkiv, have sedated a white-chested Himalayan bear to quarantine her ahead of the bear’s evacuation to a partner zoo, the park said on Instagram. Footage on the Feldman Ecopark Instagram account shows the zoo’s white-breasted female Himalayan bear walking in an enclosure while a keeper stuns her with a blowgun. The park wrote that frequent shelling had made it difficult to continue evacuating animals, but that wouldn’t stop zoo staff from trying. The bear is now in quarantine before being evacuated to a partner park. Credit: Feldman Ecopark via Storyful
