After the Ohio Department of Agriculture obtained several bears from backyard cages and roadside zoos, it needed to find them good homes. Some were underweight, some were obese, and some suffered from intestinal parasites or broken teeth.

So PETA teamed up with The Wild Animal Sanctuary to transport the bears to the beautiful Colorado sanctuary, where they finally took their first steps into their brand-new lives.

Two of the bears had been pregnant when they were obtained by the Ohio Department of Agriculture, and their cubs couldn't get enough of their new home. Captive bear cubs are often taken from their mothers shortly after birth, but these mother bears will get to raise their own young, likely for the very first time.

After they get their bearings, they will all be released into vast naturalistic habitats, where they'll finally have the space to live like real bears for the first time ever.
