Wildlife officers in Thailand (http://www.independent.co.uk/topic/Thailand) have launched an investigation after an Asian black bear was accidentally dropped from a helicopter and killed.

The young mammal, weighing around 90kg, was being transported to the Khao Laem jungle after being caught roaming around near a village market close to the Khao Kai National Park .

The bear, which was supposed to be sedated reportedly woke up and panicked, before falling from its netting after the helicopter flew into a pocket of rough weather.

“We want the investigation to be conducted in a way to prevent such a thing happening again,” said wildlife chief Wirat Chatuphon.
