At An Animal Sanctuary In Laos, He Spotted A Bear Doing Something Strange In His Pen

Bears are already cute, but what this one in Laos was doing takes the cake.

While a man was visiting the small Southeast Asian country of Laos, a trip to the local zoo turned into something incredible. When he showed up at the sun bear pen, he noticed one of the inhabitants was doing something a little odd…

Why, hello gentleman bear.

Although this is adorable, it could be a sign of past abuse.

It’s possible this bear was rescued from a bile farm.

A bile farm is a facility that keeps bears captive in “crush cages” to harvest their bile, a digestive fluid produced by the liver and stored in the gallbladder. It’s used in Chinese medicine, but life on such a farm is terrible for any creature.

There’s no information on the background of this bear, but hopefully his bipedal walking is just a quirk and not a sign of a lifetime of abuse. At least he can get out and enjoy the sun now!
