A video has surfaced of bears trapped in cages at a zoo in Russia. They’re half-submerged and reaching from their cages to accept food from workers who approached them on rafts:

According to a local news source, one bear and multiple goats have already drowned from this heavy rainfall in Russia’s Far East. Animals in captivity, like these bears, are at the mercy of the humans who imprison them for entertainment.

What You Can Do
Never patronize zoos or any other place that uses live animals for entertainment.
