This female cub was rescued in the forest by a farmer who went into the forest to collect fire wood. “I heard the bear cried and cried all alone in the forest,” recalled the farmer from Ratanakiri province. Some days later, the farmer handed the six weeks old cub over to our Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team (WRRT), and they took it to the Free The Bear sanctuary at Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre for medical evaluation. “The cub was malnourished when we found her,” said WRRT officer Hak Srorn.
