27-years old Zarith Sofia Yasin, a Malaysian singer, has been charged for keeping endangered Sun bear at home. A video of the animal peeking out of the window of the singer has gone viral last week. The singer claimed that she rescued the bear cub thinking of it as a dog, but the court has dismissed that claim. Many online commentators have thrashed her for keeping the animal illegally in her condo.
