Dillan the Bear Rescued From Union County Sportsmen’s Club

Following a vigorous, months-long PETA campaign, Dillan, a morbidly obese Asiatic black bear suffering from painful and life-threatening dental disease, was rescued! He was previously held in a cramped, concrete cage at the Union County Sportsmen’s Club in Pennsylvania, where he was denied veterinary care for his advanced dental disease. Dillan was transferred to The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Colorado, where he finally received the veterinary care he needed. He was introduced to Lily, another bear PETA rescued, and they’ll both enjoy a beautiful new habitat with acres in which to roam, forage, and explore.
