ISLAMABAD: The Deputy Commissioner of Islamabad claimed that the bear at the city’s zoo was fine and had been examined by a vet on Wednesday.

The video of a bear lying on the ground and panting went viral on social media, from the previous day. Pakistani celebrities, including Armeena Rana Khan, took to Twitter and rose their voice against the ill-treatment of animals in Pakistani zoos.

The deputy commissioner of Islamabad took to Twitter and in response to columnist Mehr Tarar, tweeted that the bear was fine. The commissioner said that he visited the bear and she seemed fine after being examined by a vet.

“Ma’am visited it. A private vet also examined her. She is fine Alhamdolillah. I just pray n am trying in whatever way possible that the couple is released back to the Forest. Good news is that a new team has taken over the zoo. You will see massive improvements in sha allah,” he tweeted.

He posted a video of the bear walking around in her pit at night.
