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 Balkasar 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.
