Bear Rescue in Sindh

A bear was confiscated by Sindh Wildlife officials from an illegal bear baiting event in Mela Makhun, Sindh on September 29th, 2005 after a tip-off from undercover WSPA investigators. The 11 year old Himalayan brown bear was brought to the Wildlife office in Hyderabad from where it was being relocated to WSPA’s bear sanctuary in Kund, NWFP. Although bear baiting is illegal in Pakistan, numerous such events continue to take place between October and April. This is the first bear to have been confiscated by the authorities in the last year.
