Urgent News about Yupi 2014-01-10

Dear all,

A couple of hours ago I got a nightmarish call from my Yupi colleagues in Michoacan, Mexico with the news that Yupi escaped her areas and was somewhere in the zoo!

There are some night visitors tonight and one woman noticed Yupi wandering outside the park.

I panicked as the anti mutiny police where surrounding the zoo and these people they will shoot her for sure to death!

The leader of the Yupi colleagues in Michoacan immediately went to the zoo and then when finally 45 minutes ago the zoo director spoke to the media, where he said that Yupi was sedated and back on her area (but he didn't allow no one to see her!). She was there and she asked if after this incident that could have been disastrous and deadly for Yupi and the public, if they now will consider to let her go to a proper place for her species, and he said in front all the media that he never received any proper nor any formal letter from any bear or wildlife park, nor from anybody with good credentials asking to take Yupi!

He denied publicly and lied saying that he never got the letters from Cochrane the Polar bear Habitat in Canada, one zoo in Scotland and the YWP in England to take Yupi!

Here are some the news from few minutes ago: http://yucatan.com.mx/mexico/accidentes-mexico/osa-polar-escapa-de-su-albergue-en-zoologico-de-morelia




Tomorrow my colleagues in Michoacan will have a press conference and our colleagues in Mexico City will talk to the media.

On Sunday there will be a large protest outside the zoo, demanding that Yupi be relocated!
