Baby Bears Rescued After Being Stolen From Mother

Two baby bears weighing less than TWO POUNDS each have been rescued after being stolen from their mother by wildlife smugglers.

International animal charity, Four Paws, rescued the bears at just a few weeks old and have cared for the pair at their sanctuary in Ninh Binh, Vietnam.

The two female Asiatic black bears were confiscated by Vietnamese police after being found on an illegal wildlife farm in Hai Phong.

The bear cubs, who weighed just 1lb 9oz each, fell victim to smugglers who were likely to subject the pair to a life of torture on a bear farm.
