Prison break! Escaping an 18 year sentence [video]

Watch the first ever swim for this moon bear after 18 years in a tiny cage. You can almost see the smile on the face of the moon bear, rescued in Vietnam.

Unfortuntely, the female moon bear who was rescued at the same time as him, never got to experience the joy of the water, because she passed shortly after being rescued - it was discovered that she had a massive, growing cancerous tumour in her chest - however, we are glad that she got to experience some form of freedom and peace in her final days thanks to being rescued.
