Hoa Lan and Hoa Tra have been suffering in tiny cages at a bear farm in Thai Nguyen province for over 12 years. The bears lacked light, fresh water and room to move. The two black bears had to live in very poor conditions because they were sold to a bile bear farm when they were young.
In August 2018, Hoa Lan and Hoa Tra were successfully rescued and arrived safely at their new home, BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh. Years of cruelty on the bile farm had left their mark. Hoa Lan’s teeth in particular were in terrible condition and our on-site vet had to treat the bear at the first vet check.
