Polar Bear Shot In Zoo

In what is probably one of the most despicable and cowardly of crimes, someone has shot a defenceless Polar Bear in the Moscow Zoo.

The Bear, named 'Vrangle' was shot several times with a small calibre gun towards the end of October. The zoo suspect that this sick minded sniper fired multiple rounds from a high rise apartment opposite the zoo.

Vrangle is now being treated by vets for multiple infected injuries. He has been described as one of the 'kindest bears in the zoo'. Not that this makes any difference. This is a sick crime on a par with canned hunting.

It is hoped that a thorough investigation is made to find the culprit as they are as likely to shoot people as animals.
