You Won’t Believe How Much Trouble This Bear Went Through Just So He Could Climb Trees!


Blue is a Cambodian sun bear, found in a blue basket by rescuers at Free the Bears, who suffered an injury as a young cub that severely affected his ability to walk.He was brought to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Center, where veterinarians assessed Blue’s well-being. They determined that, if Blue’s condition worsened or if he began to show signs of chronic pain, then he should be euthanized.Instead, Blue was paired with a rambunctious bear cub named Baker, whose sparky disposition challenged Blue to defy his injury and — with the help of twenty-four-hour care and some intense rehabilitation — he was finally able to walk!
