WATCH: 17 Bears Rescued from Concrete Pits, Now in Sanctuary
17 bears held captive at the Black Forest Bear Park in Helen, Georgia are finally free. Thanks to PETA, Sam Simon, The Wild Animal Sanctuary, and the Atlanta Humane Society, the bears have been removed from their barren concrete pits and are living happily at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado.
Now, instead of begging for scraps from the spectators and having their babies torn from them just after birth, the bears are enjoying 60 acres of green grass, their own private dens and top notch veterinary care.
According to PETA, two of the bears, Ursula and O.B., “were moved to the sanctuary in time to give birth to their new cubs in comfortable dens, and for the first time ever, they will have the chance to raise their cubs themselves, instead of having them taken away shortly after birth.”
