Bear freed after spending 9 years in ‘torture vest’ – Then he discovers water for the first time



If you want to see the true face of happiness just take a look at Tuffy having the time of his life at his new sanctuary. This poor bear’s life was a tough one. He was kept at a bear farm where he spent nine long years trapped in a ‘torture vest’ and packed into a tiny cage. 

Unfortunately, there are lots of other bears who share Tuffy’s life and aren’t lucky enough to be rescued the way he was. These farms use these gorgeous creatures for their bile which is extracted directly from their gall bladders. Yes, this is as painful as it sounds. If you wonder why would someone do this, it’s because Chinese people use it in the traditional medicine. 

Most of these bears never get the chance to see the sun, or roam freely. Luckily for Tuffy, Animals Asia stepped in and managed to get him out of that awful place. He now gets to spend his days doing everything that makes him happy, and that’s swimming in his sanctuary pool. 

Watching Tuffy having fun is definitely something you don’t want to miss.
