A bear named Ursula has finally had the pleasure of raising her own cubs after being rescued by activists.

Ursula used to live at the Black Forest Bear Park in Helen, Georgia where her enclosure was a concrete pit. With just a small shallow pool for entertainment, Ursula spent her days pacing inside her prison. During the 17 years she spent there, she was bred several times but every time she gave birth her cubs would be taken away from her.

Ursula’s story took a much happier turn last December when, thanks to PETA and ‘Simpsons’ creator and animal activist super star Sam Simon, she was rescued and taken to a sanctuary in Colorado.

Ursula was pregnant when she was rescued and went right into her den when she arrived. Months later, three of the most adorable cubs emerged with their momma and, needless to say, it was a sight to be seen.

Ursula is finally getting to experience what it’s like to raise her own cubs, and from the photos PETA posted on their website, she seems to be loving every second of it.

Simon has helped animals for years. He boycotts SeaWorld, he saved a race horse from a life of torture, speaks out for dolphins and has bequeathed most of his fortune to animal rescue organizations when he passes.

Thanks to efforts like his, captive and suffering animals like Arturo can have hope that they can one day have a better life just like Ursula.
