[…] When we talk about the stereotype, it is a kinetic loop where the animal tracks its steps. For the lynx, that wasn’t the case.”

A similar phenomenon was observed in the polar bear by associations. According to Alexis Mayo, this is Henk who was filmed in a “brief sequence where he was not interacting with a trainer or other animal”.

Polar bears are very sensitive to their environment and need lots of constant stimulation. In this case, they can develop behaviors – which do not necessarily mean suffering – but which conflict with self-motivated behaviors.

This self-motivation had originated in his old garden. The vet maintains that the zoo has given itself the means to respond to it, particularly by creating an add-on dedicated to polar bears. “It’s not because we’re filming them at a time when it’s bad luck,” he said.

Accidental ‘unfortunate’ death

Regarding the giraffe’s death, Alexis Mayo confirmed the animal’s death that occurred on the afternoon of April 20.

The vets anesthetized the animal and tried to move it “but in the maneuver the juices from the rumen [premier estomac des ruminants, Ndlr] He approached his head and strangled the giraffe. So she unfortunately died of suffocation from the fall, with her head finding itself lower than the body,” the vet explains before determining that it was “completely unfortunate.”
