In this video frame grab made available by Associated Press Television News, Mendoza Zoo Director Gustavo Pronotto looks in on Arturo, in the polar bear's concrete enclosure at the zoo in Mendoza, Argentina. Despite a petition by hundreds of thousands of people asking for Arturo's relocation to a zoo in Winnipeg that has accepted the transfer of the 28-year-old bear, Pronotto said Tuesday, July 22, 2014, that Arturo, will remain in Argentina. The country's last remaining polar bear in captivity only suffers the typical ailments of old age said the director and asks Arturo supporters to ìstop bothering the bear,î adding it would be risky to move him due to his advanced age.
