Sun Quanhui, a senior scientific advisor at World Animal Protection, said that animals raised in captivity are still wild animals. He does not believe that a mall can provide a comparable environment to the one Pizza would enjoy in the wild. What's more, frequent contact with human beings can adversely affect the bear's mental health, immunity and life span, Sun added.
