Visitors have raised concerns that being confined to such a small space might make the bear anxious. The park's deputy manager, Li Chengtang, responded that it's hard to judge the appropriateness of the living space since China doesn't have regulations about such things.
Addressing complaints about the city's unsuitable climate, Li explained that as a polar bear raised in captivity, Pizza is able to survive in an artificial environment. In addition, the theme park spends tens of thousands of yuan on Pizza's food, and provides the bear with advanced medical care, Li added.
