"Kaka calmed down when he was introduced to Gallamair, a 2-year-old female sun bear," WFFT wrote. "Gallamair and Kaka became instant friends."
The two rescued bears were each other's constant companion for six years. But then something very unexpected happened.
Even though Kaka had been sterilized by the sanctuary to prevent captive breeding, suddenly Gallamair became pregnant. "Unfortunately it appears that the operation was not successful," WFFT wrote.
Gallamair gave birth to a cub, Kaka's baby. And because mother sun bears in the wild raise cubs on their own, the sanctuary realized that it would be in Gallamair's best interest to give her and her cub some time and space. Kaka moved to another habitat at the sanctuary.
Three years passed before Kaka and Gallamair saw each other again. Finally, last month, they were reintroduced — and their connection was quite obviously stronger than ever.
