Meet Radiant Rene
Female, Asiatic black bear
Rene was forced to fight trained dogs in the baiting ring before her rescue in 2012. She’s a very small bear, which must have made the fights even more terrifying.
Today, Rene – whose name means re-born – is recovering well, though she still bears scars on her little nose. She’s so friendly she has earned the nickname ‘the welcome bear’ because she says a big hello to every new bear. Her loving nature has helped so many sad and suffering bears feel at ease in their new home.
As well as making new friends, Rene loves exploring every nook and cranny of the sanctuary. Don’t disturb her on her adventures though - she’s known to be quite feisty!
If you’d like Rene to be your friend too, why not give her a forever home?
Adopt Rene today and receive a special welcome from your new friend very soon.
