Our Wildlife Rapid Rescue Team (WRRT) have managed to rescue a badly injured sun bear cub, missing a paw, in Steung Treng province, in the northeast of Cambodia. After receiving a tip off, they left yesterday evening and drove all night to rescue the injured cub, finally rescuing it this morning.
They are now safely on their long way back to Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre, where they will hand it over to Free the Bears for further care. To date, the WRRT have saved over 75,000 wild animals.
Faces have been blurred to protect identities and avoid compromising future rescue operations.
