Footage of an "alien like" creature crawling through the ruined forests of a palm oil plantation made its rounds on social media recently, leading some to label it the "Malaysian Chupacabra". The truth, sadly, was more frightening - it was a Malayan Sun Bear - ill, emaciated, hairless and in a lot of distress. What could have caused the sun bear to be in such pain?
