Rescued Bear Cub Now Enjoys Splashing in the Sun

Meet Georges! Georges is an Asian black bear, or moon bear, and was rescued from a bear bile farm by Animals Asia in Vietnam.

Georges is quite taken with his new life at the sanctuary, especially the ice cold baths in the summer -- turns out moon bears love to have splashy pool parties!

The government-registered charity Animals Asia freed Georges, an Asian black bear, or moon bear, from a local bear bile farm where the animal was mistreated and neglected. But now, Georges spends his summer days carefree and cooling off in the searing Vietnam heat with a nice ice cold bath.


According to the organization's website, about 10,000 bears - mainly moon bears, but also sun bears and brown bears - are kept on bile farms in China, and around 2,400 in Vietnam. The bears are regularly milked for their bile, which is an important ingredient in local traditional medicines.
