The bears arrived at their new home on Monday after a trip of over 1,000 kilometres from the suburban HCM City district of Cu Chi, where they had been kept in a semi-wild environment at the Cu Chi Water Park for many years.

According to Animals Asia, the bears, which are approximately 20 years old, are in poor health and have faced significant hair loss, as difficult business conditions and a reduced operational scale have seen underinvestment in the facilities for a long period.

The park's operator Dang Vinh Co. Ltd. voluntarily transferred the animals to the Animals Asia Organisation as they changed their business operations.

Animals Asia have so far rescued and are taking care of 269 bears in Vietnam.

The Vietnamese Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Development reports that around 200 bears are currently kept in captivity across the country.
