South American enclosure at South Lakes WAP 2008

Includes Spectacled Bear, Capybara, Asian (!) Short Clawed Otter and Brazilian Tapir - all in this photo (you'll need to look closely for the brown blob in the background that is the tapir!).

      What don't you like about it? I don't think it looks too bad, although I think the mixed of predators and pray animals just causes unesscery stress.

      I have a programed taped on Specy bears all about a scientist that set out to prove that bears are not responsible for cattle deaths in the cloud forests! He discovered that not only do they hunt and kill cattle but they also hunt and kill tapir!!!! found tapir hair in many bears droppings!

      Stupid idea IMO.
      I've heard that bears are somewhat resistant to hotwire, have they ever had any escapes or was what I heard just speculation?

      why have asian otter!

      the whole mix is nonsence!

      That's really the least important problem.

      Predator. Prey. Confinement.

      Not only a recipe for disaster. It's cruelty to the prey animals that have to live in perpetual fear of the bears, with nowhere to flee.

      Very embarrassing curatorial decision for South Lakes.
