On March 17, 2016, AAF released a video of the polar bear-brown bear hybrid, 'Pizza', in its enclosure at the theme park. The video appears to show the polar bear laying on its side crying due to its entrapment in the unnatural environment. The video has been viewed over 600,000 times. A petition calls for Pizza's relocation to Yorkshire Wildlife Park.

As a result, the aquarium is under renovations.
