Background history: The Karnataka Forest Department received a distress call from villagers in Tumkur district about a sloth bear and her two cubs trapped in a 20-ft-deep well. They immediately reached out to Wildlife SOS for the safe extraction of the bears from the dry well. The mother bear was on the brink of death and she unfortunately succumbed from injuries and starvation. The cubs were estimated to be 20-weeks old and would not have survived without their mother’s guidance, which is why they were rehabilitated at the Wildlife SOS Bannerghatta Bear Rescue Centre in Bengaluru.
