Long An (VNA) – Three Tibetan bears have recently been handed over to Cu Chi water park tourism site in Ho Chi Minh City for caring.

The bears, which weigh from 90-120kg each, were held in captivity by Dang Cong Thach in Tan An city of the southern province of Long An from 2005.

The province’s forest management department had encouraged Thach to voluntarily hand over these animals to functional agencies.
