From Animal Asia:
“Murphy lost his mother as a cub and was sold by the hunter who killed her – and was destined to fall victim to the live animal trade until he was rescued by Vietnam’s Forest Protection Department.
He arrived whimpering, sad and lost. At six weeks old when he arrived, Murphy became the youngest bear at Animals Asia’s Vietnam sanctuary – the youngest sun bear the team would ever raise.
Now, after working with our bear workers and vet team for the past three months, Murphy is starting to become ready to face the world again.
And what could be more exciting than to have his own personal playroom? That it’s in the great outdoors is almost besides the point. The big draws for Murphy are the toys to play with, the structures to climb – and lots of space for twirls and tumbles.
If you’d like sponsor a bear like Murphy – rescued from the bear bile trade and being rehabilitated at our sanctuaries in China or Vietnam – you can do so here: http://bit.ly/1ax6j6I”
