Today there are many circuses and zoos that only think of finding their own benefit regardless of the welfare of the animals. In Cholita’s case, the bear lost all her fur and unjustly had to endure a great deal of abuse by a circus, her fingers were mutilated, her teeth were broken and her fur lost due to stress.
In 2015 Cholita finally managed to feel free after spending 20 years of her life locked in a cage and suffering various mistreatments that she definitely did not deserve.
The appearance of this bear is shocking to many and it is incredible to even think that it is a spectacled bear.
It was the Animal Defenders International (ADI) organization that rescued Cholita from her terrible situation, her health was in a terrible state and they had to be provided with an oxygen chamber.
After completing her rehabilitation process, she found herself strong enough to return to freedom in a safe enclosure located in a forest.
Since then hse has been eating properly and has even developed new hair on various parts of her body.
The bear is very happy walking among the trees, she can now play, sleep peacefully, eat and even interact with her neighbors Lucho and Sabina who are a couple of bears that were also rescued by the ADI organization.
Jan Creamer, President of ADI, commented:”It is an absolute joy to see Cholita enjoying her new home, the sights and sounds of the forest, things that were cruelly denied her since she was a baby.”
Currently the ADI organization is in the process of rescuing another spectacled bear, if you want to make a donation to support this cause, you can do so by giving on the website.
