An endangered sun bear cub, who was rescued from a Cambodian soldier in Preah Vihear province last week, settles into his new home in Kandal province’s Phnom Tamao Wildlife Rescue Centre. The six-month-old male cub will be quarantined from other bears for at one least month, but receives as much as 10 hours of attention per day from staff members of the Free the Bears organisation. The cub is the 155th bear to be rescued by the organisation in Cambodia since 1994.
