The rescued bears in Binh Duong and Dong Nai provinces will be also taken to the sanctuary. Three veterinary surgeons, including one from Austria, have joined the rescue.
By late 2017, six Tibetan bears were successfully rescued from a farm in Thuan An Town, Binh Duong and then were brought to the Vietnam Bear Sanctuary in Tam Dao National Park of Vinh Phuc Province.
The Tibetan bear has been listed among endangered species by International Union for Conservation of Nature.
