Polar bears are already endangered species according to the Red Data Book of the Russian Federation. There are many reasons why such creature will be one day extinct, one is animal abuse. A heartbreaking video showing a polar bear writhing in pain, after she was allegedly fed with a firecracker, went viral online and sparked outrage among internet users.
According to a report, a Russian military base cook fed the polar bear with a kind of firecracker used by the military. Witnesses said, the bear and her cub were frequently seen around the base looking for food and being fed by the cook. If proven, the alleged cook may spent up to 7 years in prison.
” The cook also stated that the bear did not die and workers were already looking for her, but failed to find her. In contrary, a report said that the bear was shot to death, ending her suffering, but this was not verified.
However, it is still unclear what exactly the polar bear ate. According to other versions of the story, it was a rocket flare instead of a firecracker. It is also said that the bear accidentally ate the fire cracker, thinking of it as food while other report suggested that she was tricked into eating an explosive charge concealed in the food fed to her.
