Vietnam – Bear ‘Cotton Blossom’ Will be rescued tomorrow from her terrible suffering life of bile farming.
Rescue team are finally on their way after earlier preventions due to Covid.
We are hoping to set up a live link to the rescue very soon – and will give details when we can.
Regards Mark (WAV).
We’ve finally received the go-ahead to rescue a lonely moon bear in desperate need of love and care. Our emergency response team are on their way right now.
We were first alerted to her plight back in March. But due to the Covid-19 outbreak causing widespread travel restrictions in Vietnam, and this poor bear being held in the border region of Gia Lai province, over 700 miles away from our sanctuary, we couldn’t reach her.
But we didn’t forget. And we’ve been preparing for her arrival ever since. Her house has been cleaned, her bed made and a delicious feast is being prepared for arrival. But that’s not all…
Back in March, the spring sunshine was warming the air, and the magnificent red cotton blossoms were blooming. Though we couldn’t rush to her aid there and then, we remained hopeful that her many years of darkness were coming to an end and she would soon blossom at our life-saving sanctuary. To mark her eventual arrival we planted a Cotton Blossom tree. And in honour of the bear you’ll help us rescue, we’ve named her Cotton Blossom.
Currently, we know precious little about her. What we do know is that she’s been forced to endure painful bile extraction and we can almost be sure that she’ll have serious health issues as a consequence.
She’ll need special ongoing care and treatment for the rest of her life. Which we hope could be another 15 years or more. Hopefully, with enough love and time, all of the pain, anger and fear she feels will fade into distant memories.
In these dark times, will you be the ray of sunshine she’s been waiting for? You can help this sweet girl on the road to recovery and beyond by making a donation today.
Our rescue team plans to arrive tomorrow morning. In the meantime, we’ll do our very best to keep you updated, and I hope to bring you more information soon. For live updates, and to see your kindness in action, please be sure to follow us on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
As always, thank you from the bottom of my heart for being there for Asia’s animals when they need you most.
With bear hugs of gratitude and of hope,
