Spice of Life Rescue - Four bears rescued from the circus

BREAKING NEWS! We are delighted to announce that we have just rescued four beautiful moon bears from the Hanoi Central Circus in Vietnam.

They are the last remaining performing bears at the circus, the same circus we rescued Sugar and Spice from in 2019. We have named them Chilli, Saffron, Tiêu (‘Pepper’) and Gừng (‘Ginger’).

The circus gave the bears up voluntarily to Animals Asia after the Ministry of Culture said it would phase out wild animal performances in Vietnam.

This historic move was made after Animals Asia’s Captive Animal Welfare team published a report on the effects of performing on wild animals, and years of campaigning and working collaboratively with authorities and communities.

Since then, 15 circuses have stopped using wild animals altogether and many more are phasing out their use of wild species. Although two venues still use bears, with things moving in the direction they are, we are hopeful this will soon change.

In the meantime, it will take some time for the four bears to trust that their new life is here to stay, but with your support we will be with them every step of the way.
