Meet Brave Bhoori
Female, brown Himalayan bear
Bhoori is a 16-year-old bear who was forced to fight dogs in the baiting ring. Thankfully, she was rescued and brought to the safety of our supporter-funded sanctuary in 2011.
Bhoori’s settled into sanctuary life well, but she’s still scarred from the cruelty she endured. She has a hole in her muzzle from the rope used to control her (which you can see in one old photo). She’s missing teeth that were likely taken out when she was a cub, and the claws on her hind limbs are badly damaged.
Like all the bears at the sanctuary, Bhoori’s past is a sad one. But today Bhoori is healthy, energetic and loves splashing in the pool and foraging in the undergrowth. Her life is peaceful and care-free.
