PETA Helps To Rescue 17 Bears From Prison-Like Zoo

Filed under: PETAZooBearRescueAmazing

PETA helps rescue 17 bears from awful conditions and got them into a good animal sanctuary!

Thanks to PETA, Sam Simon, The Wild Animal Sanctuary, and the Atlanta Humane Society, 17 bears have been rescued from awful conditions!

They were taken away from the concrete pits at the Black Forest Bear Park in Helen, Georgia.

The conditions there looked absolutely unBEARable!

They were stuck in their prison-like environment, forced to beg for scraps from tourists.

Now, they live on 60-acres of green grass at the The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, Colorado!

They have their own dens and access to top notch veterinary services!!

Best part? At the zoo, their babies were taken away from them immediately after birth, but at the sanctuary… they get to keep their cubs!!

Check out the video to see this heartwarming story AFTER THE JUMP!!

Gorilla Goes Bananas Playing In Leaves!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooFunnyGorilla

Awww! This is so super cute!

The gorillas at Atlanta Zoo are so lucky! They have such great keepers!

To keep the apes from getting bored, the zoo puts all the leaves into piles and hides food in them.

It's all part of enrichment, which is meant to get the animals up and moving around and get their brains going.

It keeps them happy and also just happens to be insanely cute to watch!

One of the zoo's resident gorillas, Kazi, went absolutely bananas over the piles of leaves!

Running, rolling, splashing leaves around… it looks like so much fun!!

Check out the video (above) for some tips on how you can enjoy fall some more! LOLz!

Atlanta Zoo's Panda Cub Twins Are Doing GREAT!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooPanda

There were two cutie pandas born at Zoo Atlanta back in July.

Lucky for us, the zoo has given us an update!!

The cutie panda cubs are "doing wonderful," and are still gaining weight fast!

They're at the perfect weight for their age and they haven't even needed supplemental feedings or anything!

Their mama just keeps nursing them and they keep getting bigger and bigger.

The twins are gaining more hearing and eyesight as the days go on, but they can't walk just yet.

They can roll and wiggle around though, so it's even cuter!!

Check out the video (above) to see these cutie pandas squirming around!!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooPanda

Panda Cub Twins

Excuse us, we have to sit down a moment… we were overwhelmed with cuteness.

Remember when that giant panda mom popped out those twins??

Well the little babies are being closely monitored and co-raised by zoo keepers, as we previously mentioned.

And boy are the zoo keepers doing a great job of raising those babes!!

The twins are looking more and more like pandas each day! Instead of naked mole rats or something! Look at the little bit of color coming in… they're so stinkin' cute!

They're even gaining weight rapidly, tripling in weight in only two weeks!!

They now each weighs 361 and 360 grams!!

That's ahmayzing! Grow babies, grow!!!

Zoo Helps To Raise Newborn Panda Twins!

Filed under: Cuteness!ZooPanda

Panda Cubs!

Zoo Atlanta's 15-year-old Giant Panda, Lun Lun, just gave birth to twins as we previously mentioned!

Lun Lun is actually an experienced and very capable mama but she's never had twins before.

So the zoo staff have stepped in to help her out!

They are caring for one of the babies while she takes care of the other.

They may begin rotating the babies in and out so that they get equal amounts of motherly love!

Want to try and get a sneak peek of the babies??

Check out the live Panda Cam HERE!!

Congrats again, Lun Lun!!
