Nothing will ever be able to rewrite the sad story that led to this bouncy bear cub needing to be saved - but his rescuers are doing all they can to ensure his present is as happy as can be.
Murphy, a sun bear from Vietnam, was orphaned after a hunter killed his mother and later sold him into the wild animal trade. Fortunately, authorities were able to intervene, saving him from what could have been a lifetime caged on one of the many illegal bear bile farms in the country.
Indeed, despite all he'd been through during his first weeks of life, Murphy was one of the lucky ones. At 6 weeks old, he was placed under the care of folks from Animals Asia to live on the grounds of the group's Vietnam sanctuary.
