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!!

She was a half-mile up a deserted trail when she stumbled onto the wounded doggy, who had been shot and left for dead!!
