Meet Brave Bhoori
Female, brown Himalayan bear
Bhoori, whose name means ‘brown lady’, is a 16-year-old ex-bear baiting bear.
Like all the bears at the sanctuary, Bhoori’s past life is a sad one. Prior to her rescue, she was controlled with a thick rope laced through her soft muzzle. She’s also missing several teeth which were likely removed when she was just a cub and the claws on her hind limbs are also damaged. After spending two years being abused in the most violent of blood ‘sports’ known as bear baiting, Bhoori was rescued in 2011 and brought to the safety of the sanctuary.
Bhoori’s settled into her new peaceful life and loves her home. She’s a strong, confident and energetic bear who likes nothing better than splashing about in the fresh water pools, wandering through the lush green grasses and exploring wide-open spaces.
