Lom was rescued in 2006 after he was confiscated by the Forestry Department in Bokeo Province, Laos. Forestry Officers chased the bear hunters through the forest as they tried to evade capture. Armed officers opened fire in order to prevent their escape the bears were successfully rescued.
Lom arrived with two other confiscated bears at 2 -3 months of age, so needed round the clock care. Now, despite his dramatic beginnings, Lom remains quite a laid back bear who is bossed around by some of the females, which he seems to enjoy!
Sponsor Lom for one year, 6-months or why not buy a gift sponsorship for a bear-hugger you care about?
