The Louisiana Department of Wildlife & Fisheries found this Black Bear cub tied to the bumper of a small pickup truck. “Sally” was born in captivity and taken from her mother shortly after birth. She was then forced to live for weeks tied by the neck to a pickup truck with no protection from the elements and receiving almost no food and water. Thankfully, Louisiana WF chose to let us rescue Sally and bring her back to our Sanctuary, where she made a full recovery.
Sally was initially paired with another juvenile Black Bear named “Baloo”. Baloo has proven himself to be a wonderful, confident, and gentle older brother looking out for his younger sister. According to our Animal Care staff members, the two Bears adore each other and are absolutely inseparable. They are now happily living together with other bears as a peaceful and happy family unit in one of the Sanctuary’s many Black Bear habitats. Thanks to your support, little Bear Sally had a place to go where she could live a long and healthy life. Please donate to help Sally, Baloo, and the hundreds of other animals that we have saved!
