This Neglected Bear Has Lived A Torturous Life In The Circus…Watch As She Finally Gets The Life She Deserves!Ashley Maisano
Cholita, deemed “the real life Paddington bear,” was taken from the wild as a baby and forced to spend her years performing in the circus. She was greatly mistreated; confined to a small cage, her fingers were cut off and teeth were broken. Instead of being covered with thick, black fur as a bear should, she began to lose all of her hair due to stress. She was eventually confiscated from the circus by authorities but wound up in a zoo for the next decade.
Thankfully, Animal Defenders International (ADI) heard about this horrible story and knew they had to rescue her. They went to the zoo and took her back to their rescue center where they gave her a lot of medical attention to bring her back to health. They built her a furever home in her natural habitat, and now Cholita is back in the Amazon forest where she should never have been taken from in the first place! Take a look at her journey in the video below:
