VLADIVOSTOK, September 3. /TASS/. Three bears are yet to be evacuated from their half-submerged cages in a zoo in Russia’s Far Eastern city of Ussuriisk.
Other animals have been evacuated to safe places, the press service of the city administration told Tass on Thursday.
"There were 42 animals in the zoo, and 39 of them have been evacuated," a source said. Bears will live in enclosures in the yard of an old circus, while the lion was sent to a rehabilitation center for rare predators in the settlement of Alexeyevka, the source from the administration said.
He said water has almost fully subsided from the flooded zoo and there was no danger for the life or health of the bears remaining there. They were being fed, and veterinaries monitored their health, he said.
Green Island animal park in Ussuriysk, flooded by heavy rain on August 30, was home to 39 animals, the smallest of the zoo's inhabitants evacuated first by police in portable cages.
The operation to evacuate animals began early on September 1. On Wednesday, a total of 15 zoo inhabitants - 11 bears, a wild jungle cat and three wolf-dog hybrids - were evacuated. The lion, called Grey, was the first animal to be airlifted on Tuesday
It is still unclear how many animals have died in the flooding.
