Now this bear has no reason to be sad having apparently been rescued from a life as a status symbol to a Mafia gangster. So the fact that he's in the zoo and not being ill-treated is a Good Thing. The fact that he was removed from the wild in the first place is, I would suggest, a Bad Thing. However looking at these pictures (taken at full telephoto through glass and therefore not as clear as they could be) he doesn't look excactly ecstatic. But then perhaps bears just don't ever look happy.
