These are not the same bears that Venice posted about.

These are spectacled bears from the Andes. Cholita was rescued about 12 months ago or a bit more. She had lost all her hair because of stress and bad diet plus a lot more, so she had lost her spectacles as well. She has been taken back to a forest sanctuary in the Andes.

Now ADI have found another spectacled bear, that has also lost her hair though stress. Dominga..
DOMINGA'S TRAVEL CRATE GETS TESTED ON HUMANS! ADI's South America General Manager Alexis inside spectacled bear Dominga's travel crate, ensuring all surfaces are smooth and there is nothing to harm our precious cargo. As soon as the crate is complete it will be taken to Dominga's zoo enclosure to familiarise her with it and help reduce any stress on the journey. Dominga is currently alone in a zoo high in the Andes mountains in Peru. An ADI veterinary team will do a full battery of tests on the almost completely bald spectacled bear and trim her overgrown claws at the start of a journey that will take her over the Andes and along the Madre de Dios River to her new home in the forest. ADI'S TARGET IS TO HAVE LONELY DOMINGA ARRIVE IN HER NEW HOME NEXT TO CHOLITA ON VALENTINE'S DAY bananalove

Cholita is the top bear. She has her skin moisturised regularly and she loves grapes. I think she will love Dominga too.

Update on Dominga...


Spectacled bear Dominga has spent years alone in a mountain zoo in Peru. The ADI mission is underway to take her back to the forest where she will be neighbours with bears of her own kind. Our advance team is already with Dominga, completing preparations and the permits for the move. ADI President Jan Creamer and the veterinary team arrived in Cusco today and will make the 5 hour journey to Abancay tomorrow morning. We will post updates whenever possible, including going live on Facebook (remember we are working in the Andes mountains phone signals can be difficult). SHARE & INVITE your friends to LIKE Animal Defenders International on Facebook as Dominga goes home to join Cholita, Lucho and Sabina in the forest!

If anyone should be waiting for any news,, it's not coming through.

They've been travelling for 3 days, the last lap being down the river in the Amazon to the Ecological Reserve, which should have been today but now news so far. However, they where held up on the first day due to the lorry carrying Dominga breaking down in the mountains. It took 3 hours for another to reach them. They decided to travel into the night, and then took four hours sleep after rotating drivers. Setting off at early morning they travelled all day yesterday in dreadful weather, and this morning we got a snippet of video, it was pouring with rain, saying they were to reach the reserve this afternoon. So far no news ! This is probably due to reception, as it has been bad from the beginning apparently.
Dominga was travelling well after having her skin creamed and nails clipped and being fed on lots of fruit and loads grapes which just like Cholita, she loves.

Very Important; Critical;

Second Reading of Private Members Bill on Friday 24th February against Animal Circuses in the UK. Last time only 3 MPs' knocked it back.
This Bill must be passed. Please sign if you are concerned about animal circuses in this country. It could be another few years before it can happen again.

ONLY ONE DAY LEFT.

Stop Circus Suffering.

Please send an email to your MP>

http://www.ad-international.org/animals_in_entertainment/go.php?id=4305&ssi=10

https://www.thunderclap.it/projects/53472-stop-circus-suffering

Please also sign the one for Wales. Anyone can sign no matter where you live. If Wales are not included it means the circuses can hide out in Wales without DEFRA doing inspections. DEFRA only inspect in England.

https://www.assembly.wales/en/gethome/e-petitions/Pages/petitiondetail.aspx?PetitionID=1131

THANK YOU.. ONLY ONE DAY LEFT TO SIGN

I'm still watching and waiting. My goodness, it's a long old wait !

For those who might be interested, the Wild Animal Circuses Prohibition Bill, has been blocked AGAIN, by the same MP as the last 2 occasions, and overall at least 9 times Mr Christopher Chope.Two others Andrew Rosindell MP and Philip Davies MP, have also blocked Bills.

Very sad, particularly as Thomas Chipperfield also announced today that their oldest tiger had just died. Coincidence or what ? She had spent every day for 20yrs in a cage.

Thanks to any who singed petitions or wrote to MP's but it's another sad day.

Flippin swine that Chope. I got a letter back last time I wrote to him on the issue , defending the circus people up to the hilt.

April the giraffe STILL not given birth! I had a look at the facebook page as well as u tube, and you should see the morons on the chat there, its just unbelievable , its trolled up to the eyeballs. Surprised the zoo dont just disconnect the chat filth permanently. Apparently they disconnected it for a few hours recently because there were allegedly complaints from animal rights people that showing the birth was going to be, wait for it, too sexually explicit!!!! Mind you , I dont believe that , I think its just pro zoo trolls trying to give AR's a bad name.

South Lakes Safari Zoo is possibly about to lose its licence.

There seems to be numerous unnecessary problems there.

Good grief ! Absolute disgrace.

I hope they do lose their licence and it just shows how useless local authority inspections are . Of course, the zoo would be bringing in much needed revenue to the area, wouldn't it ?
