Arturo is a 29-year-old male polar bear currently living in Argentina’s Mendoza Zoo. He is suffering in 40C (104F) heat in an enclosure that has just 20 inches of water for him to swim in and has as a consequence been displaying worrying behavior.

Please sign this petition or at least spread the word in order to have Arturo transferred to a zoo in Canada which has better facilities for an animal that is used to polar conditions.

this is the saddest thing I have ever seen

Fuck. I cant even stand 40 degree heat when i’m completely naked. He’s got a permanent triple fur coat on plus several other layers. It must be torture.
