Cameras at Animals Asia's Vietnam sanctuary caught an idyllic moment as a group of four bears frolic in the pool on a hot May morning.
The perfect few minutes shows exactly why this rescue center is called "sanctuary." Having been rescued from the bear bile industry, the bears enjoy absolute peace and serenity in the water, while butterflies can be seen fluttering overhead.
Moon bear Amara happily floating on her back and playing with browse, soon attracts the attention of Elise who comes bounding over to the water's edge. Each bear stops to greet each other before going back to their business - Elise splashing her paws happily at the waters edge, Amara floating on her back in the middle of the pool.
