RESCUE BEAR 40
SUSIE2 (Beruang 35)
AGE : 6 Years Old
MEANING OF NAME: Name was given to her by her previous owner who surrendered her to the BSBCC.
HISTORY: Susie came to the centre on the 15th July 2014. She was kept illegally as a pet by an individual who bought her from the Pensiangan Village in the Keningau district when she is still a cub. He paid RM 200 for Susie. The owner’s son then surrendered Susie to the Sabah Wildlife Department on June 2014. The previous owner fed her primarily rice, meat, honey and fruits.
PERSONALITY: In August of 2015, we introduced Susie to the other sub-adult bears, and were pleased to see her get along well with all of the bears. She has blossomed into a happy bear. Susie can be short tempered and rather sensitive, and is quite aware when strangers are around. When food is present, especially her favourite variety of fruits, she can smell it from far away and she eats extremely fast. It will take a long time for her to get comfortable with her new found freedom, but she is growing more confident everyday as her rehabilitation continues
IDENTIFYING MARKS OR TRAITS: Susie 2 has a large and broad chest mark with a “meteor” at the middle of her body. She has a tendency to pace and seems aggressive.
Susie is available for MY BEAR adoption.
