Animals Asia Rescue Frees Bears Who Spent 21 Years Trapped On A Bile Farm

On Monday, international NGO Animals Asia’s skilled rescue team cut through the rusty cages of five moon bears, who had been held on a cruel bile farm for 21 years, delivering them to freedom. The bears are now on their way to the organization’s expansive and lush sanctuary in Tam Dao National Park, Vietnam.

The team arrived in the small southern town of My Tho on Monday morning to rescue the five moon bears. The bears have now been given names for the first time in their lives: LeBON, Kim, Mai, Star, and Mekong.

Twenty years ago this month, the global nonprofit Animals Asia was founded by Jill Robinson, with a mission to end bear bile farming. The incredibly cruel industry sees bears (mostly moon bears, but also sun bears and brown bears) in Asia held in tiny cages with their abdomens crudely penetrated to extract bile, used in traditional medicine. Moon bears are listed as vulnerable by the IUCN, and categorized as endangered by CITES.

Cages that were never meant to be opened are cut by Animals Asia.

In 2017 Animals Asia signed a groundbreaking memorandum of understanding with the Vietnamese government, partnering with them to relocate the approximately 800 bears who remain on farms in the country to sanctuaries.

This week’s #FiveAlive rescue is part of the massive endeavor by Animals Asia to remove these bears from egregious conditions on farms, and see them transferred to safe homes where they will receive the care they deserve.

The rescue is being reported in real time on Animals Asia’s social media, and below:

Once removed from their cages, after more than two decades of incarceration, Animals Asia immediately assessed their health, addressing any urgent medical concerns.

LeBON, Mekong, Kim, Mai, and Star are now in the midst of a 1,700km/1,050 mile journey by truck to their new home at Animals Asia’s Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre in picturesque Tam Dao National Park, Vietnam.

We know that in more than 20 years of cruel incarceration, LeBON, Star, Mai, Mekong, and Kim have never had proper nutrition or medical care. They have known only rusty cages and a life of suffering. They were viewed as commodities, and not treated as individuals. At the Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre they will finally experience freedom, play in grassy enclosures, forage for food, and have the chance to behave like real bears.”

Animals Asia Founder and CEO, Jill Robinson MBE said:

“We eagerly await LeBON, Kim, Mekong, Star, and Mai’s arrival at their new home at Animals Asia’s Vietnam Bear Rescue Centre. They will never suffer behind bars again. This is an important step in our work to remove all of the bears who remain on farms in Vietnam from their cages, and bring them to sanctuary. It is a new day for these innocent bears who will now finally enjoy some of the freedoms they were denied so long ago.”

    One more issue is that video games are generally serious anyway with the key focus on mastering rather than entertainment. Although, it has an entertainment factor to keep your children engaged, every game is usually designed to develop a specific group of skills or program, such as numbers or technology. Thanks for your write-up.

    Way cool! Some very valid points! I appreciate you writing this article and also the rest of the website is also really good.

  52. I have discovered some important things through your blog post post. One other stuff I would like to express is that there are plenty of games available on the market designed specially for preschool age small children. They include things like pattern identification, colors, animals, and models. These generally focus on familiarization in lieu of memorization. This keeps little children engaged without feeling like they are studying. Thanks
