Baby bear Mochi- a surprise rescue story
In the late afternoon of the 18th of May 2020 FOUR PAWS Vietnam was called by our cooperation partner Education for Nature (ENV) and the authority in charge and asked to take over one bear cub.
The cub was illegally sold by a wildlife trafficker and bought by a family that saw the cub for sale in Son La province. Instead of contacting the authorities and the Wildlife Crime Hotline of ENV first, the family bought the cub as they were afraid of the cub’s uncertain future. In corporation with our local partner ENV and the authorities in charge, Mochi was moved to our BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh.
Mochi is a cub of a couple months old, weighing only 2kgs. Mochi is well so far, however, because she is so small, she is more susceptible to disease as her immune system is not developed. Mochi is at a very vulnerable age.
She will be staying at BEAR SANCTUARY Ninh Binh for long-term. Here she will receive the love and care that she needs. She is closely monitored by the bear keepers, fed every 4 hours, and already has a lot of enrichment. She is very playful, alert, and intelligent. .
