Reports that a polar bear at Moscow Zoo was shot by an unidentified gunman from a nearby building have not yet been confirmed, Zoo spokeswoman Yelana Mendosa said.

Earlier the zoo said in a statement that Vrangel the bear had been suffering from multiple gunshot wounds since late October. Zoo officials said they believed the bear had been shot by a sniper in a building near the zoo.

"We cannot yet confirm that the bear was shot," the spokeswoman said. "A vet inspected [the bear], but cannot say for sure that the holes are bullet wounds. The bear is getting better and is eating and drinking normally."

She said the zoo did not plan to open a criminal case.
