Unbearable bears sent to Glasgow
Saturday 02 August 1997
The pair were sent north because of fears they could cause serious injury after assaulting three other bears in Dudley, West Midlands. Chris Gough, senior curator at Dudley Zoo, said the unruly Himalayan black bears, both females, had left staff with no option but to transfer them after they started throwing their weight around and fighting. Mr Gough said Inca and Gretel - who weigh 20 stone each - did not want to "fit in with the others any more".
The remaining Himalayans - Spartan, Winnie and Wellington - were glad to see the back of them, said Mr Gough.
