A little "HERO"

I'm delighted to have just been allocated "Hero" as part of the "Sloth bear Sponsorship Program". "Hero" is an Indian Sloth Bear and was only 7-8 weeks old when he was confiscated from animal traders by Indian authorities in February 2004. He received intensive care from the vets and keepers at the Agra Bear Rescue Facility and is now a happy and healthy young bear. Hero loves to investigate his enclosure, and play with his best friend Mowgli. He also enjoys taking occasional dips in the pool. My dream would be to meet him someday and give him a BIG bear hug!! Isn't he just a handsome bear!! :D
