Uckfield charity helps malnourished bears in India

Help

A Sussex charity has begun a mission to rescue malnourished bears kept in zoos in India.

Two years ago the team from International Animal Rescue went to India to try and save the last dancing bears from the streets.

There are 198 zoos in the country and at least half contain captive sloth bears.

Now the Uckfield charity has turned its attention to malnourished bears kept in cramped cages.
