FOR INUKA
For all who so easily slam the plans to put Inuka down: Do you even know Inuka?
I’ve seen him since he was a little cub, with his mother and Nanook in the old enclosure about half the size of this new upgraded one. He has been living alone in the refurbished $8mil enclosure for the past 6 years since his mother Sheba passed away. Not only that, Inuka will not have companions of his same kind ever again because of animal rights laws governing today’s society.
Inuka’s health problems didn’t magically appear overnight so resources have been pumped in over the years, not just in the last few months, precisely because @wrs.ig wants to give him a good quality of life. For the only polar bear born and bred in the tropics, in Singapore

Have you ever taken care of sick loved ones over a prolonged period of time? Sometimes there is no longer any more relief possible for their suffering. Is it still humane to keep them alive purely based on life support means, for our own selfish reasons? I don’t have an easy answer for that because it’s essentially the complex debate about euthanasia and its variations. Humans have the ability to make medical directives for when they are terminally ill, but animals would never be able to do so

Spare a thought for his keepers, carers and vets. You think they enjoy seeing him suffer or even have to make the tough decision about his future? They’re suffering every single day from seeing Inuka deteriorate, more than you and me can ever imagine.
Those who visited him on Saturday rejoiced at the image of him entering the water to swim under his favourite water feature and walking around his enclosure slowly but steadily too. If you knew Inuka at all, you would be torn and helpless at the idea of keeping him alive versus putting him down because both decisions would be painful when the time comes
