Viet Nam: Four Paws Moon Bear Rescue – Hai Chan, Thai Van and Thai Giang have all been rescued!

SAV Comment – It is great to see this excellent rescue by Four Paws.  With the work being undertaken by Animals Asia as well, things are really moving on to end the bear bile business.  That final day will never come quickly enough !

 

Hai Chan, Thai Van and Thai Giang have been rescued!

With your help, FOUR PAWS successfully rescued the three Asiatic black bears and transported them to our new BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh in Vietnam.

Living on a bear farm for ten years, Hai Chan endured the painful procedure of bile extraction as well as having both of her front paws amputated, most likely to produce bear paw wine – sadly still considered a delicacy by some.

Bears Thai Van and Thai Giang were kept as pets in the backyard of a steel production company. While we do not know for sure if they were abused for bile extraction, it’s clear that their terrible keeping conditions negatively affected their overall health.

Years of abuse has visibly left its mark on these three bears, but thanks to your support, they can begin a new life in species-appropriate surroundings.

Now at the sanctuary, the bears will be thoroughly checked by our vets, and after a quarantine period, they’ll be released into their outdoor enclosure. For now, we’re thrilled to say that the bears are already progressing better than expected – Hai Chan especially!

Once again, thank you for making this rescue possible. We look forward to updating you on the bears as they leave quarantine and progress in the coming weeks and months!
