Bear baiting continues unpunished in Pakistan. For information on this cruel blood sport and how you can help bring an end to it, visit WSPA’s website
After arrival at the sanctuary the nose-ring was removed immediately.
Wounds in the neck were treated for maggots.
The bear enjoys new found freedom. He has extensive scarring on his muzzle from years of bear baiting fights.
WSPA staff look on as the bear explores his surroundings.
