Strange ways of law: Ram Singh Munda rides a bicycle with his pet sloth bear Rani in Gahatagon village in India. When wildlife officials learned of Munda, who brought the orphaned bear cub home from the forests, he was arrested and jailed for violating wildlife laws.
The bear was sent to a zoo where it is refusing to eat and Munda’s abandoned six-year old daughter has been shipped off to state-run boarding school.
The law has obviously been applied mindlessly. Hope Munda will be relased and get reunited with his bear and daughter.
