I am delighted and relieved to hear this. It is great there are sanctuaries for the bears who are lucky enough to be rescued and spared the life of misery. Thank you for sharing this good news with us.

I wish all moon bears were saved from captivity and the cruel -- and nothing is more cruel than a bad yet unnecessary deed -- practice of extracting their bile!

I like these bears extremely; what a special marking they bear on their chests ;)

Shameful are the ways of those who make a business out of exploitation of animals. And the ignorant belief that bear bile has any medical properties must be dispelled!
