June 27, 2013 (Alpine, CA): Bobbi Brink Leads the Rescue of Nine Ohio BearsBobbi Brink, Founder and Director of Lions Tigers & Bears, announced her departure to lead a rescue and multi-state relocation of nine bears. The animals will travel from three locations in Ohio to reputable sanctuaries in multiple states across the United States. During the three-week trip beginning June 2th, Brink will remove seven bears from two private residences and two that have been anonymously surrendered.
June 27, 2013:And they're off! Bobbi and the Lions Tigers & Bears Rescue Team leave for Ohio to rescue nine bears in need! One very lucky bear, Maddie, will come back to Lions Tigers & Bears to live out the rest of her happy bear life. The other eight bears await new homes throughout America!
June 28, 2013:Rescuing bears is no easy job! The Lions Tigers & Bears Rescue Team made it to New Mexico yesterday, and just reached Texas mid-day today. The hauler is temperature-controlled for the bears' comfort. With temperatures reaching 108° yesterday in the desert, it will be very important for the bears to have a cool ride to their new homes.
July 1, 2013:Over the weekend, the Lions Tigers & Bears Rescue Team arrived in Ohio late last night. Medical examinations for the bears have begun today. As far as we know, none of these bears have had any proper medical attention. Each bear will receive a basic physical, stool sample, baseline blood work, a dental check-up, vaccinations, and microchip implant - - all the basics we can do while each one is sedated. Two male bears will be neutered, a necessary procedure before taking them to their new home to live with other bears. We can't thank you enough for helping us make this happen! We could not provide these bears with the medical attention they need without your generous donations!
July 2, 2013:The Lions Tigers & Bears team has had a busy couple of days! Yesterday, the team completed medical evaluations and procedures on six bears in Ohio. Today, Bobbi Brink spoke at the International Fund for Animal Welfare's press conference in Columbus, Ohio. The team is on their way to South Dakota and will travel for the next few days, until they arrive at Spirit of the Hills Wildlife Sanctuary.
July 3, 2013:Today, the Lions Tigers & Bears team is on the road to South Dakota to bring six bears from Ohio to their new home. They stopped along the way for fresh fruits, veggies and granola bars for the bears. These bears will be well-fed in our care!
July 8, 2013:The Lions Tigers & Bears team has had a busy weekend! They traveled from Ohio through Indiana and Illinois to South Dakota. The Lions Tigers & Bears team delivered six bears to Spirit of The Hills Wildlife Sanctuary, where the bears are happily munching on healthy snacks and getting accustomed to their new surroundings.
The team is back in Ohio to pick up three bears, and will be off to Texas later this week!
