years ago this April, Jill Robinson first walked onto a bear bile farm. On that day in April 1993, Jill could have walked away, but she chose to act and do what she could. Today, you also have a choice. If everyone reading this donated just US$20, it would pay for the care of over 150 bears at our China sanctuary for a full year. Please help us celebrate 20 years of progress. Donate US$20 today (or whatever you can afford).
The second male, and this boy is missing his left forepaw. Observing the bears earlier at the farm, it was clear that this bear was very close friends with the bear in the next cage, and they were both playful and seeking reassurance while activity went on around them. After Caine was anaesthetised, his friend watched anxiously as he sank into sedation, and began to act out – swinging from the top and bouncing around his cage. It was difficult for the rescue team to watch this display of loyalty and concern and know that they were separating these two friends, possibly forever. On reaching the vet team, it is again noted that Caine is only lightly sedated and so he is immediately transferred to his transport cage.
Meanwhile, back in the barn, his friend stares into Caine's empty cage.
