The bear named Fifi in the video below spent most of her life locked up in dirty cage at a Pennsylvania roadside zoo. The bear was taken there as a cub and that’s when the nightmare started. She and other bears were forced to perform confusing tricks, like standing on their hind legs. The conditions the bears were kept in were extremely bad, and after the zoo finally closed, things still didn’t improve for the bears. Fifi languished in a small, rusted cage and only had a dilapidated doghouse for shelter. That’s until PETA and The Wild Animal Sanctuary rescued her and gave her a second chance at happiness.
“More than 30 years ago, a bear cub named Fifi arrived at a Pennsylvania roadside zoo. For years, she and other bears were forced to perform confusing tricks, like standing on their hind legs. After the roadside zoo closed its doors more than 20 years ago, Fifi languished in a tiny, rusted cage that contained nothing more than a dilapidated doghouse for shelter.
Fifi was thin, her coat was dull and dirty, and she suffered from painful, untreated arthritis. Every step was a struggle.”
