An adult male sloth bear was observed with intermittent unilateral bleeding from left nostrils during summer. The animal was under intensive monitoring and necessary treatment medication was undertaken for forty consecutive days. Behavior based modification in the feeding schedule needs to be performed in order to address incidents of epistaxis in these animals especially which are hyperactive during adverse climatic conditions i.e., peak summer and winter.
