Ti Map’s troubled past is proving hard to forget
Ti Map, the moon bear who famously smiled in wonder following his rescue from a bile farm, is slowly putting his past behind him but it’s proving to be a long road to recovery.
Animal rights luminary Zoe Weil writes exclusively for Animals Asia on how we can learn to have a more healthy relationship with the world around us for the benefit of all living beings and a brighter tomorrow.
When we last caught up with moon bear Bern, he was timidly taking his first steps on grass after a decade in a cage. But he’s come a long way since then. Wait till you see what he’s up to now.
