Bear Of The Month: Michael Oreo

Michael Oreo was only three years old when he and three other sloth bears were rescued in an anti-poaching operation carried by Wildlife SOS in Jharkhand in 2013. The poachers were attempting to sell the bears in Nepal where the barbaric practice of ‘dancing bears’ is still legal. Deprived of a nutritious and healthy

Bear Of The Month: Elvis!

Possibly one of the most lovable and friendly sloth bears at the Wildlife SOS Agra Bear Rescue Facility, Elvis’ life today is a stark contrast to what it was when he was rescued more than two years ago. He was only a couple of months old when poachers snatched him away from his mother,

Bear Of The Month: Yogi

Wildlife SOS’s anti-poaching unit rescued Yogi bear from Bihar in 2011. Our team received a tip off about a group of poachers who were passing through the state with four sloth bear cubs as contraband. It was a laborious process tracking down as any signal alarming them would mean the cubs would be killed and the people would go into

Bear Of The Month: Rani!

Rani is the most famous sloth bear at the Agra Bear Rescue Facility and she holds a very special place in our hearts.

In Loving Memory of Julee

February signals the end of the painfully cold winter, with the gentle warmth of spring gradually ebbing its way through the cities that dot the north Indian plains. For sloth bear Julee, slowly making her own way through the dusty bylanes of the city of Agra, the changing weather was coinciding with a huge

Geriatric Care for Rescued Sloth Bears

The practice of dancing bears was a centuries-old tradition that inflicted terrible cruelty on thousands of highly endangered sloth bears in India. Although their ‘dancing’ bear days are long behind, our rescued and rehabilitated ursines still bear the horrifying physical and psychological scars that stand testament to the abuse they suffered at the hands

Bear Of The Month: Amitabh!

On catching a glimpse of Amitabh taking a quiet, blissful nap in his forested enclosure at the Agra Bear Rescue Facility, one could find it rather difficult to imagine the horrors that this sloth bear has faced in the past. In 2003, we were fortunate enough to have rescued a seven month old Amitabh

Bear Of The Month: Arifa!

Six year old Arifa was a victim of the ‘dancing bear’ trade, an illegal practice that was once prevalent across India. With no anesthesia, a red hot iron poker had been driven through her tender muzzle at a very young age and as part of the training process, Arifa would be beaten repeatedly and

Mowgli’s New Life At The Agra Bear Rescue Facility

Wires hang precariously between the trees at the edge of the Sanjay Dubri Tiger Reserve in the Siddi district of Madhya Pradesh. The voltage that shoots through the wires is dangerously high, much above the permissible limit – strung low by poachers that have only the worst intentions at heart. An unsuspecting female bear
