A YEAR-OLD sun bear was found by a resident in Taman Palma Jaya Perdana, Seremban, on Monday afternoon after it wandered out of the nearby Berembun Forest Reserve, reported Kosmo!.

Negri Sembilan Department of Wildlife and National Parks (Perhilitan) director Wan Mat Wan Harun said the baby sun bear is believed to be lost.

The resident called the Civil Defence Department which then contacted Perhilitan for help.

Sun bears are protected under the Wildlife Conservation Act 2010.

“Three staff members from the Wildlife Management Unit caught the bear using a foot constricting tool before it was put into a cage,” said Wan Mat.

The sun bear was captured in less than an hour and was sent to the National Wildlife Rescue Centre in Sungkai, Perak. It is reported to be in healthy condition.

> Actor Aiman Hakim does not believe in accepting roles based on character, Utusan Malaysia reported.

The actor, famed for his role in the drama Diandra, said choosing which drama to act in based on the character as practised by some actors was ridiculous.

“For me, the most important criterion is the script itself. And try not to compare the local industry with Hollywood,” he said.

The actor admitted that most scripts in the local industry were not up to par.

“I’m not saying every script is bad. There are a few good ones, but they need to be improved.

“Sometimes I try to revise the script but there are people who have problems with it. Then how can we produce good artwork?” said Aiman.

Aiman is currently filming Kalis.
