So thankful these two have been rescued. Still saddened at how horribly they have been treated during their young life. Can't help but think of all of other bears that are still being victimized like this by these evil people desiring to make a living off of their torture.

I keep thinking about that bear entertainment place that Bob Barker tried to shut down in Cherokee....but this is progress. I agree with Kathy; I'm very happy for their rescue but it wrecnhes my heart dry to think how much abuse they suffered. Thnx Cher.

Awesome - 2 more saved!! So stinkin' angry looking at these photos - just no soul left in their eyes. Humans are the worst animal of all. Hopefully, they can regain some dignity and live in peace for the rest of their lives.
