Kaohsiung zoo closes exhibit after bear brawl

KAOHSIUNG--Kaohsiung's Shoushan Zoo has temporarily closed off its Formosan black bear exhibit out of safety concerns following a fight late last month between two male bears that left one dead, zoo director Chang Po-yu said Tuesday.

Calling the incident "regretful," Chang said that the bear display will nonetheless be reopened before the upcoming Lunar New Year holiday, lasting from Jan. 30-Feb. 4.

The fight occurred Dec. 20, when Po Pi, a large 10-year-old black bear, broke through a barrier separating him from Hsiao Shan, another male. At some 20 years older than his 150-kilogram attacker, Hsiao Shan could not defend himself and eventually succumbed to his severe bite wounds later in the day.
