TCI Foundation: Fighting Bear Bile Farming & Saving ‘Jingle’
Jingle is a happy, playful and sociable bear who loves the company of the other bears. These days, she’s often be found playing in the enclosure or lying in the soft grass under the sun.
It did not start out that well for Jingle. On a freezing cold evening in 2009, missing her right front paw, the little bear was found abandoned, stuck up on a tree. Luckily she was not too far away from Animals Asia’s rescue centre in Chengdu.
Thanks to Animals Asia and the TCI Foundation, Jingle was given a new life after the horrific episode of what was probably an escape from a bile farm or while being transported to one.
