Bear Starts To Jump For Joy Because He Knows He’s In A Better Place Now

Tuffy the bear was rescued from a bile farm and reestablished at a camp for bears in Vietnam. A video was shot of him jumping for joy and taking a dip in his open space.

He had been in captivity for years in a tiny cage having the bile harvested right from his living body. Bile, which is produced by the liver,  is used by traditional Chinese medicine practitioners, although there is no medical proof that it can medicinal effect.

As a result, Tuffy’s gallbladder was so severely damaged that it had to be removed. Despite much torture, Tuffy is now recovering at the bear sanctuary.
