Ministry of climate change cancels export permit of Islamabad zoo’s poorly fed bears

Two Himalayan bears which were going to be relocated from Islamabad Zoo to a Jordanian sanctuary run by Princess Alia Foundation, have been barred from leaving Pakistan, animal welfare organization Four Paws said on Wednesday evening.
The former dancing bears, Suzie and Bubloo, are the last animals remaining at the now closed zoological garden, after elephant Kaavan was moved to a sanctuary in Cambodia last week.
“Everything was planned and organised for the transfer tomorrow, but then our team were surprised by a disappointing announcement: At the very last moment, the ministry of climate change cancelled the export permit of the bears to leave the country for unknown reasons,” Four Paws said in a series of tweets.
