Lazy, shy bears

Walking back I stopped at the 2003 founded Asiatic Bear Rescue Center. Asiatic Bears, the Moon Bears, were rescued or confiscated from poachers and spend their time now in the Rescue Center.

The bears – when living in the wilderness – are found in China and Asia in mountain forests up to 4000 m.

The Free the Bears Fund cares about the bears. To me the bears seemed shy. (I would be the same if hundreds of people would try to see me through a fence every day). I saw only one bear which was lying lazy in a swing.

Khouangsi Bear Rescue in Laos

If you are in Luang Prabang, Laos it is only a short trip to the Khouang Waterfalls and the Asiatic Black Bear Rescue Center and definitely worth a trip seeing the turquoise beauty and the lazy bears.
