Arturo the polar bear recently dubbed 'world's saddest animal' exhibiting stereotypy movements at the Mendoza Zoo.

Bill McDonald, CEO of the Winnipeg Humane Society, says Argentina's hot weather is just not suitable for a polar bear.

McDonald said a YouTube video of Arturo shows the animal rocking from side to side repeatedly — a potential sign, he said, of abnormal behaviour.

"This bear is doing what's called stereotyping or stereotypy movements. It's basically going insane," he said.

"Sometimes pressure has to come from government to government," McDonald said.
