Meet Brave Bhoori
Female, brown Himalayan bear
Bhoori, whose name means ‘brown’, is a 16-year-old ex-bear baiting bear.
After spending two years being abused in the most violent of blood ‘sports’, thankfully, in 2011 Bhoori was rescued and brought to the safety of the sanctuary.
Bhoori’s settled into her new peaceful life, but still holds marks from her former life. In one of her pictures (before rescue) you can see she had a thick rope laced through her soft muzzle. She’s missing a number of teeth because it’s likely they were hammered out when she was just a tiny cub. The claws on her hind limbs are also damaged. Owners remove claws and teeth so their bears are less able to defend themselves against the dogs in the baiting ring.
Like all the bears at the sanctuary, Bhoori’s past life is a sad one. But today Bhoori loves her new forever home. She’s a healthy and energetic bear who likes nothing better than splashing about in the fresh water pools and exploring wide-open spaces.
Adopt Bhoori today and receive a special welcome from your new friend very soon.
