Fifi the brown bear spent her whole life in a roadside zoo in Pennsylvania until last July when PETA saved her. She was forced to dance and ride bicycles for tourists for ten years, and then abandoned in a cage for the next twenty.
The thirty-year-old bear was in a shocking state when PETA found her. The animal protection association reported:
Fifi is a 30-year-old Syrian brown bear who has difficulty walking and appears to suffer from severe arthritis in her rear limbs.
Luckily, the team at PETA managed to save her and threeother bears froma roadside zoo in Pennsylvania last July. The bears had been living in rotting conditionsin a defunct zoo called the Big Bear Farm Zoo Park, and they never left their tiny cages in twenty years.
But The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado took the old bears in and gave them all the medical care they needed. They were now free to roam in acres of grass, swim, and most of all, hibernate, which they hadn't been able to for years.5 months down the line and you would hardly recognise Fifi...
