RESCUE BEAR 13
AGE : 10 Years Old
Name origin: Name after the town she was rescued from.
History: Arrived from Kinabatangan River in January 2009. She was in a very bad condition, as she was previously kept as a pet in a small iron-cage, probably since she was an infant. Her mother was suspected to have been killed for bear body parts for the black market. Kuamut’s neck was tied with an enormously heavy metal chain with a brass lock, weighing more than 2 kg. She might have been attached to this chain since she was a cub. Her neck was thin and worn when the chains were finally removed by specialists at the BSBCC. She is now one of the healthiest bears roaming around the forest enclosure of BSBCC.
Personality: Kuamut is a quiet and sensitive bear. Every day she goes on her independent adventures in the forest. She has found a new big tree with vines and she likes to be alone in that tree. Whenever other bears try to climb that tree, she will make a noise and give a warning. Be warned not to alarm her with sudden movements or noises. She is an adamant survivor and seems happy to be at the centre. Susie is her closest friend and the only one she will play wrestle with.
Identifying mark or trait: Kuamut has identifiable facial features with blue/grey eyes and white dot markings on her eyebrows. She also has a very broad chest mark with plenty of black dots.
Kuamut is available for SHARE BEAR adoption.
