A zoo spokesman told the BBC this was an "old case." He said the bears are begging in the video because visitors "throw food at them." The zoo discourages people from doing this.
In 2015, the country's government had accredited or considered only four of Indonesia's 58 zoos "decent."
The zoos in question could get their licenses revoked, but it doesn't mean they'll close.
This zoo in particular is privately run, so the local government says it can't do anything.
