Vieng arrived at Tat Kuang Si Bear Rescue Centre in May 2005 after he was confiscated by the Forestry Department in Luang Prabang, Laos. He was approximately 3 to 4 months of age when he arrived so needed round the clock care.
Vieng is a very confident bear with a gentle face and a mischievous glint in his eyes. Agile and inquisitive, he enjoys playing with Xaikeo and climbing on the platforms in his forested enclosure. He has the most beautiful white claws, which is quite unusual for bears.
