Happy #MoonBearMonday everyone!
The last time we caught up with moon bear Nhan Ai, she was struggling to adapt to the wide-open spaces of her enclosure.
It's a common issue for bears that have known only the tiniest of spaces and a complete lack of liberty. This was certainly true for Nhan Ai who endured 14 years in a cage.
She was one of the more than 1,000 bears presently being kept on bear bile farms in Vietnam. The animals can be caged for up to 30 years suffering regular painful bile extraction as the fluid produced by their gall bladder is prized in traditional medicine.
Thankfully Nhan Ai was freed by Animals Asia in 2014.
