ISLAMABAD, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 22nd Sep, 2021 ) :The long tormented Brown Bear Suzie shifted from the Islamabad Zoo to the Four Paws' bear Sanctuary Al-Ma'wa in Jordan passed away fighting worst tumors of cancer.
The Brown Bear were reported to develop some psychological complication after their cub passed away after accidently consuming piece of a broken glass bottle thrown into their enclosure by some visitors. Both the bears used to attack each other considering each other responsible for the death of the baby bear, said an IWMB official.
A global animal rights non-governmental organization (NGO) Four Paws took the initiative with the assistance of IWMB to transfer the Brown Bears that were also injured at that time for better healthcare in Al-Ma'wa Sanctuary which was a partnership project between Princess Alia Foundation and FOUR PAWS in Jordan.
Ms Khan tweeted, "IWMB has sad news to share: Suzie (our Himalayan Brown Bear sent to sanctuary in Jordan) has died after a valiant battle with cancer." The IWMB chair expressed her heartfelt feelings for the Brown Bear's demise to the Bear's well-wishers in the Federal capital. "Suzie's condition got worse after her tumors returned, unfortunately. Al Mawa and Four Paws gave her best possible medical care," the Chairperson added.
Ms Khan while narrating the life journey of the deceased animal wrote, "Suzie had a hard life: poached from beautiful Deosai as a cub & then a life of cruelty and suffering."In her last year she was well looked after by IWMB's Jibran and Anees and Four Paws but too late as her cancer returned, she noted.
The IWMB chair prayed for Suzzie in her tweet, saying, "May she rest in peace in bear heaven."
