Why Save Bears Overseas? You may be wondering why you should care about bears in other countries. Many people in the United States work on important local animal rescue efforts, and we feel it's also important to work on animal welfare around the globe, especially due to the extreme cruelty involved and the fact that we can end bear farming with the help of people like you.
Oliver, a bear caged and tortured for 30 years on bile farms, enjoys a swim in his enclosure at Animal's Asia's Moon Bear Sanctuary in Chengdu, China in the video above.
*Says Animals Asia founder Jill Robinson, "I know that some of these images are difficult to witness but please do not turn away from them. We must see and understand what is happening to these bears in order to truly help them."
