A tribute to Itchy Bear


It was with a heavy heart that we delivered the sad news that Blackie, aka Itchy Bear, passed away suddenly at our sanctuary in Vietnam.

We are all still shocked and heartbroken.

Blackie was such a shy and sweet little bear, and she adored her best friend and mentor Elise.

Although beautiful Blackie was taken far too soon, please remember that thanks to your kindness, she lived five glorious years of sunshine and joy here at the sanctuary, surrounded by love and fun... Something she would never have experienced if not for the gifts you’ve sent over the years.

Here’s a short video in tribute to Blackie...

Thank you so much for giving Blackie the life she’d always deserved.

If you’d like to make a tribute in loving memory of Blackie to help us fight for all her fellow bears still used in the bile trade, and the other abused animals of Asia, you can do so here.

In Loving Memory
