RESCUE BEAR 42
AGE : 5 Years Old
MEANING OF NAME: Name was given to him by his previous owner. “Montom” actually means black in Dusun language.
HISTORY: The Sabah Wildlife Rescue Unit rescued Montom from Kampung Melangkap, Kota Marudu on January 18th, 2015 and sent him to the BSBCC on January 21st, 2015. The story reported to the Wildlife Rescue Unit was that their dog chased away his mother and she left Montom behind. He was taken and kept as a pet for a year in a chicken wire mesh cage and fed with human food. The owner was willing to surrender Montom to Sabah Wildlife Department’s Wildlife Rescue Unit. He weighed 26.8kg on arrival.
PERSONALITY: In August of 2015, we introduced Montom to the other sub adult bears and were pleased to see him get along well with all of the bears. He is a friendly and playful bear. Montom appreciates of all the meals served to him but if given the choice between bananas and papaya, he will favour the bananas. Montom enjoys his freedom around the forest. He is a good tree climber, he will not miss the activity to climb up and spend most of his day sunbathing on trees. His enthusiasm for life is a delight to see.
Montom is available for MY BEAR adoption.
