Wild Sloth Bear Loses Life To Explosive Bait Set By Poachers

A recent trend in wildlife poaching seems to be the use of bombs and explosives concealed in food bait to kill endangered wildlife across India. Poachers have used this method to kill at least 3 to 4 sloth bears in the southern state of Karnataka in the last year alone. Food items that works

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

Bear Of The Month: Goldie

It has been many years since we welcomed Goldie into the Agra Bear Rescue Centre. He was rescued from a Kalandar community settled in Sahibganj, Jharkhand. Starved, abused and forced to live the agonizing life of a dancing bear, Goldie was affected deeply, both physically and emotionally.  He was highly emaciated, had an unkempt and matted

Rose Bear Completes A Year With Wildlife SOS
