The bears Kai and Rick were sitting in confined cages from an early age for 17 years.Poachers killed their mother, and the cubs were sold. The cubs were taken to Hokaido and given to the Ainu people’s museum of culture, which has a bear cult, where four live bears were on display at the same time.
A year and a half ago,2 travelers from Great Britain ended up being site visitors to this gallery and they saw the regrettable bears in the cages and notified the Wild animals Rescue Society of this.
When the employees got on the scene, they started the procedure of freeing the four bears. And it was only last summer that they were allowed to do so, with the cages containing the rescued bears being shipped to the United Kingdom.
The employees reached the site and started the procedure of launching the 4 bears. And just last summertime they were able to do this and the cages with the rescued bears were provided to the UK.
The rescued bears belong to the category of Japanese brown bears, of which there are no more than 10 thousand individuals left in their natural habitat, and it was for this reason that it was so important for zoo defenders to save the lives of these cubfoots.
