Nine Asian black bears rescued in Binh Duong Province

Owners of nine Asian black bears in the southern province of Binh Duong voluntarily handed the animals over to the government for care and conservation on February 12.

The event marks the transition of Binh Duong from a hotspot of keeping bears for bile to a pioneering locality in the protection of bears.

A bear has a medical checkup before being transferred to the rescue centre.

All the nine bears will be transferred to a bear sanctuary to Ninh Binh Province in northern Vietnam, which is an effort between the Education for Nature Vietnam (ENV), the functional authorities, bear keepers and other non-governmental organisations, including World Animal Protection and Four Paws.

The bear owners expressed that they had wished to hand over the bears during the period from April to November 2021, however the transfer was suspended due to the impacts of Covid-19.

In this latest operation, three bears came from a private zoo, four from a multi-owner facility, and two from another private facility.

ENV said it recognises the voluntary action of the bear owners, which will motivate the efforts to put an end to bear bile farming.
