22 Moon Bears Tortured On A South Korean Breeding Farm Are Now Enjoying Life In A Sanctuary!


Twenty-two Asiatic black bears had spent their entire lives locked in small metal cages on a South Korean breeding farm. In this horrible place, not only were they prisoners, but their gallbladders and bile were harvested and traded as cures for sore throats, cancer, and more recently, as a treatment for coronavirus.

“They lived in the most horrible conditions you can imagine,” pat craig saidfounder and CEO of The Wild Animal Sanctuary in southeastern Colorado.

In this video, you can see one of the 22 moon bears at The Wild Animal Refuge Sanctuary that was recently rescued from South Korea. She is walking freely for the first time in her life!

“This female moon bear (Asian black bear) was kept inside a 5′ x 8′ steel rebar cage her entire life while living on a Bile Bear farm in South Korea. As she has never walked on real dirt or grass before, she lifts her feet up with each step and spreads them apart in an attempt to find the proper way to walk when she no longer has steel bars under her feet. The new scents of real earth, plants, and other fragrances are clearly overwhelming as she begins to navigate her new home.” Wild Animal Sanctuary said in an Instagram post..

In mid-March, Craig’s nonprofit rescued the bears, nicknamed “moon bears” for the crescent-shaped yellow markings on their chests. Craig transported them to Colorado, where they can now live happily for the rest of their lives and roam as they please.

“Seeing them finally free and playing on grass for the first time was really gratifying.” said craig. “You can tell the bears are happy now,” added. “They are able to explore 243 forests [fenced-in] acres, play in the water and act like normal bears.”
