Kham was rescued in May 2004 after she was confiscated by the Forestry Department in Luang Prabang province, Laos. Kham arrived with her brother Deng and both arrived as terrified young cubs. They would probably have been sold to a bile farm where they would have experienced a terrible life and early death.
Kham is an elegant bear with a long slender face and beautiful piercing eyes that convey a great deal of emotion and intensity. She is particularly skilled with her front paws and is a master at extracting food from the barrel feeders.
