Like Koko the gorilla before them, a sloth of moon bears at Shanghai Zoo appear to have adopted a stray cat.
Asiatic black bears, described as “the most bizarre of the ursine species” by Rudyard Kipling, are far more carnivorous than their panda cousins (themselves not herbivores, despite a widespread misconception). Black bears have been known to prey on livestock and even attack humans, though usually not where there is an alternate food source available.
Hopefully the bears and this kitty will live together in harmony, unlike the bears and monkeys at Shanghai Wild Animal Park.
