By how it looked, the  bear was suffering from a certain kind of skin disease, Sarawak Forestry Corporation (SFC) remarked.

"We are not sure what sickness. Due to floods, our Swift Wildlife Action Team (SWAT) is unable to do any rescuing. Therefore, we can only confirm once we rescue this animal.. The reason why it appeared at the plantation (on Friday) is because its habitat had been flooded," the spokesperson said, adding that there is a secondary forest near the plantation.", SFC added.
